youtube link is invalid. i'd try to reprogram the roboquad if you can though since they're really agile machines! you might want to use a few h bridge motor driver chips and of course an MCU

Isn't it just a regular motor, that you can connect to a motor driver? I don't know what motor driver options there are for Arduino, but there might be a shield for it somewhere. The red/black wire goes tio the motor, the other two is for the switch, which you can use or not. Connect it to an input on the Arduino if you want to use it.

There is a shield but it's overpriced like most shields. Check the thread I made about my h bridge a few posts down since I put the name of a good chip I'm using. I forget the name of it right now
