Hello Pololu community,
My name is Anthony and I am currently a sophomore in high school. I am currently working on constructing a combat robot for the holidays and I am at the stage of ordering my materials. I have a Laser 4-Channel 75mhz transmitter and the HiTec hfd 08RO 75mhz reciever that came with it. I am looking to buy the 2x5A dual motor controller but I am concerned that it will not be compatible with my reciever. In school, I experimented with the old Victor 888 controllers and found they did not work, due to the fact that they ran on a different voltage level. I know the 2x5A can work from 6v to 34v, 5A to 10A, but I would like to eliminate any possible room for error that I may have over-looked.
Power Consumption Estimations:
Reciever: 4 AA batteries (6v)
AmpFlow m27-150 Motors(x4): 75watts, 12v, 0.10 HP
2X5A controller: 6-34v, 5-10A
