The Sabertooth Dual Drive Board is acceptable for high powered robots up to 120lbs in combat or up to 1000lbs for general purpose robotics. It can supply two DC brushed motors with up to 60A each. Peak currents of 120A per channel are achievable for a few seconds. Overcurrent and thermal protection integrated into the controller ensure you'll never have to worry about killing the driver with stalls. Dual motor control can be operated via analog voltage, radio control, serial, and packetized serial. Independent speed and direction operating modes make it the ideal driver for tank-style robots.
The operating mode is set with the onboard DIP switches so there are no jumpers to lose and screw terminals for connections mean no soldering is required. This controller also has synchronous regenerative capabilities. The regenerative topology means that your batteries get recharged whenever you command your robot to slow down or reverse. Sabertooth also allows you to make very fast stops and reverses - giving your robot a quick and nimble edge.
A built-in 5V 1A Switch-mode BEC can supply power for your receiver or microcontroller, as well as 3-4 standard analog servos. The lithium cutoff mode allows Sabertooth to operate safely with lithium-ion and lithium polymer battery packs.
Legality: This component is NOT legal for FIRST Robotics Competition and FIRST Tech Challenge robots.

Great motor controller
I am using this to remote control an electric wheel chair. It is easy to set up and function perfectly.
