Hey all,

In the medium distant future, I am going to be planning and (hopefully) building an outdoor tank platform built around the 3" Lynxmotion tracks. Most likely I am looking at the Banebots 550 motor gearboxes, which stall at 90ish amps according to the webpage.

Does anyone have a recomendation for a reasonably priced high current motor controller? It should have at least built in protections for overcurrent and overheating. I'll adapt to whatever control scheme is required.

I am using a Sabertooth 2x25 for control of two 385 motors, but would like something bigger for the 550s.

Thanks!
