MiniDUODual brushed-motor controller rated up to 2.8A/channel! Perfect for competition robots with its built in channel mixing, as it allows the driver to control a "tank-steering" vehicle with a single stick.

FeaturesThe MiniDUO was designed with both simplicity and functionality in mind. It has everything you need in a dual motor controller and nothing more, nothing less. Plug the two servo leads into throttle and steering channels on your RC receiver, connect to your battery and two motors and you are done! A status LED on the backside glows green when the controller is powered. The two RC input channels will be mixed within the controller, allowing them to work as throttle and steering.
Other features include:
Channel Mixing?The MiniDUO was designed to be used with "tank-drive" robots, so it has built in channel mixing, but what is that? Basically, instead of each channel controlling each motor independently, they work together so that a pair of RC channels can be used as steering and throttle, for a more intuitive driving experience.
Usually a V-Tail Mixer is used to mix channels together for "tank-drive" robots, otherwise it must be done from within the RC radio menus. These setups either add complexity, weight and a mess of wiring, or require a high-end RC radio system. The MiniDUO keeps size and weight down to a minimum, and requires no high-end RC radio for operation.
