Sabertooth Dual 5A R/C 6-18V Regenerative Motor Driver (R/C)- Click to Enlarge

Out of the box, it can supply two DC brushed motors with up to 5A each. Peak currents of 10A are achievable for a few seconds. Overcurrent and thermal protection means you'll never have to worry about killing the driver with accidental stalls or by hooking up too big a motor.

Features
Includes exponential control, autocalibration and built-in mixing.
The operating mode is set with the onboard DIP switches. 
Synchronous regenerative motor driver 
Thermal and overcurrent protection
Built in 5V BEC can provide power to a microcontroller or R/C receiver. 
Lithium cutoff mode allows safe operation with lithium ion / polymer packs
Ultra-sonic switching frequency
Silent operation.

All good

Review by Wayne
General

I installed one of the two I ordered into a Bruder D-4 tractor. I adjusted the end points and it works well. The other one I installed into a Tonka tractor and it also works well. I am very confident it will work for a long time.

It's an OK system

Review by Anthony
General

I used this with a Tamiya dual motor gearbox. While this did provide the power to the small motors that are in that kit, it was prone to brown-outs. In addition to the brownouts, The unit frequently overheated, & the thermal protection would activate. That's a GOOD thing it has, BUT......with those small motors, it's also a BAD thing. They're so tiny, they shouldn't overheat the controller. Perhaps I can re-purpose the 2X5 to power the linear actuators on the Bruder D5 conversion to a working RC that I'm building, rather then as the power for the drive motors in the gearbox. HOPEFULLY by using this unit in an application that's not under constant load, I can make use of it.

Small and simple to wire

It works well, gets very hot though. A lil tricky to figure out the dip switches.

not best

Review by Robo
General

Not the Best Controller. Battery eliminator circuit has poor performance. If you plan to implement 1 or 2 servos to your receiver, good luck . I should have tried the 1amp bec version of this controller.
It would be nice if they provided more info regarding the specs of the bec
