I have been building ant and beetle combat robots for a few years now and I have been frustrated at the lack of a good speed controller suitable for combat. Most available controllers are single channel only that are re purposed from brushless esc's the dual controllers are all much larger. This has driven me to develop my own speed controller.
It will have the following features
1.) Low cost (COMPLETE)
2.) Drive two motors on the same board (COMPLETE)
3.) Work with Beetleweight or smaller robots (Works with Antweight and smaller, would be suitable for most 2wd Beetles, but not 4wd bots)
4.) have a receiver attach directly to the board so as to eliminate unnecessary wires. (COMPLETE)
5.) Single sided board for easy construction (COMPLETE)
The video below shows my robot "Death by 1001 cuts" it is using my prototype. It ran perfectly the whole event and I placed in 3rd place out of 16 robots. The control was very responsive. I actually had to limit the rates because my reflexes are not fast enough.
