I bought 2 brushed motor controllers from China to use within my hobby-weight battle robot (http://www.banggood.com/ESC-Brushed-Speed-Controller-For-RC-Car-Truck-Boat-320A-7_2V-16V-p-915276.html).
These are intended for use with my 2 cordless drill motors which will be driving the left and right wheel respectively. The robot will therefore be steered in "tank mode" by varying the speed and direction of rotation of the 2 motors using the two joysticks on my Turnigy 9x transmitter.
I am seeking to refine the model and make it easier to operate so does anyone know of a way in which I can somehow synchronize the motors to get a single joystick steering system? My transmitter has 9 available channels so if this is part of a solution then I am fine with it. I also have an Arduino available if needs be.
