Do you mean you want to learn how to program the $50 robot? If so Google "C tutorial", and/or look at the code that Admin has already written.

To do that you need something called an H-Bridge, you can either make your own: http://www.societyofrobots.com/schematics_h-bridgedes.shtml or you can just buy a chip that will do pretty much the same thing, like this: http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=315 (there are other chips you can buy). To decide which H-bridge to buy (or make) you first need to know how much current your motor will draw.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

Hi,

It's Saturday and it's my duty to kill those bottles of scotch, so my spelling robot got too much "oil" it seems - or was it my keyboard ;D
