Need To Control This Motor

Hello Guys. I have a Maestro servo controller and a couple RC Switches with low side Mosfet. Not sure if I need anything else or if it is even possible but I have a project that I would like to use a variable speed motor that is reversible and run it 90 degrees fast one direction then 90 degrees back slow and so on. Can you help me get this thing figured out? I was able to use an RC servo and just the Servo controller and ran a script. Now I need this bigger motor to work if it will be controllable as explained. Here is a link to the motor I want to use. Thanks in advance for any help.

Looks like it could draw 10amps on start up possibly. Any ideas on how to make it work?

My concern is how the listing for the motor says you have to connect different wires so it can run forward or backwards. Im assuming if I have two channels it could be controlled in both directions? I really cant wrap my head around it. Please help if you can.

Will this do it?

That motor comes with a controller that is not very versatile and won’t do what you want. To do what you want will require a completely different solution, such as a microcontroller (Arduino, Orangutan, Basic Stamp, etc.) and a high power bidirectional motor driver, like this one: pololu.com/product/1451

Furthermore, to rotate the output shaft by exactly 90 degrees requires some sort of shaft encoder, or other means of determining how the motor shaft is positioned.

Calling Pololu

Thanks for the help guys. I called and spoke with a tech from Pololu. He spent a good 35-40mins helping me and I am now able to purchase what I need to move forward. I really appreciate it.
