Very good question. @rmackay9

Its irrelevant. We are trying to be generic and not dictate what people should be using. Its any controller you choose to use. Could be an ESC for brushless or a brushed controller. For clarity in this case its one of these

Thanks, Grant.

@grant, yes it is compatible with many, many controllers… but it would be nice to have a small list of known working boards.

Something like:

ArduRover outputs simple traditional servo PWM signals to control the motors speed. There are many existing motor driver boards that accept these PWM signals and control the speed of brushed or bruschless motors. Here is a small list of know compatible motor driver boards:

Are there any other drivers that could be recommended that are more affordable? Everything on my build was going smoothly until I got to the esc portion. I bought a turnigy 20a esc for a brushed motor but cannot get it to calibrate. I am using Pixhawk. Pic below of the motor controller.
