... Preferred programming language? Most motor controllers are individual or dual; a controller which can do three or four is rare. For small motors (<2A each), you could try something like the ROMEO and the DFRobotShop Motor Shield: http://www.robotshop.com/forum/cant-find-robot-on-ssc-32-servo-sequencer-t11900 ...

Hi,
Can you make a recomendation for a DC brushless controller:
1) That can control 3 motors
2) I do not have to have a PC connected to run the program
3)Has IO on it?

Thanks
