    Thank you for you tutorial! Do you mind telling me which code you used to control 3 motors using 2x Sabertooth and 1x Arduino combo? The code I found is only good for 2 motors.

    Désolé mais pour moi il fonctione parfaitement !
    Peut-être qu'il faut posez la question sur le forum PCSHM ?

    Sorry but for me it works perfectly!
    Maybe you should ask the question on the PCSHM forum?

    Very good tutorial. This inspires me a lot. There is any possibility to receive the 3D model?
    Thanks a lot!

    Amazing work! It's very well documented and every detail laid out, love it. Just one question, you are using 2 2x32 Sabertooths, and said that this is good in case we want to add a 4th motor later. Is it possible to use a different type of card to cut the cost even more? I believe Syren has 1x25 cards, and 3 of those would be cheaper than 2 2x32 cards. I am quite a newbie, so I don't understand what the difference in 7 ampers would cause here. It's cheaper by 25 dollars though.

    Thank you, :)

    Yes, the 4th port of the Sabertooth can be used for a fourth engine.
    If our choice is to stop on this type of H-bridge it is because in our eyes it was the most suitable for the expected performance in relation to the engines to be used.
    Then it is necessary that the chosen card is in correlation with the intensities required by the motors.
    However, there is nothing mandatory to use anything else, but I don't know of an equivalent product for a lower cost...
