Hi all, first post here, but been doing lots of reading.
Really interested in the Ardupilot project and it’s various forms. Because I like to bite off more than I can chew, I’m looking to take a Lego Technic RC tank type thing (see image linked below) and wire it up with some Ardupilot hardware & a sonar sensor.
The control hardware set I’ve been looking at:

Now, from my understanding, I’ll have to look up the datasheet for these motors so I can plug in the values to ArduRover; and I believe these are brushed motors. Aside from the PWM setting, is there anything I’d need to drive these motors via ardupilot?
I’m also wondering if, since I’m replacing the control module with an ardupilot kit, if I just get rid of the existing battery and get a proper lipo & power module for the ardupilot board.
Links to good reading material on the subject greatly appreciated
