Let's Make Robots!

I need to build a BIG motor controller

Simple question,

I need to run a motor drawing between 7 and 10 amps at about 18 volts. (I think a similar question has come up reciently)

I am looking a these which is a big brother to the L293D. It says it will handle 2 amps per channel.

Question: Is it as simple as ganging up in 5 of these units in paralell to get my 10 amps?

I was thinking that you could post an how to on your lets-make-robots-with-big-motors controller for the beginners like me.

Hi silva_p, what part is confusing?  Maybe I can write up this one a little better so the confusing parts are resolved.
