Dc Motor

I am planning my design and tech of my robot but I realized I do not know how to make a dc motor work I know I can use a continuous rotation servo but I will have to learn how to work a dc motor at some point. I would really appreciate it if someone could post a tutorial on how to connect the wires.

For a DC motor you are going to need to buy a motor controller such as this
EZ Robot 2.5 amp motor controller
The type of controller you need will depend on the type of DC motor you are using (amperage, voltage etc.) connecting the wires is pretty straight forward. positvie to positive terminal and negative to negative terminal (many boards allow for multiple motors so you may have several sets of these positive and negative terminals). you then connect the controller board to the EZ-B and you're good to go.
