Arduino Mega 2560, Dagu Rover 5, and Dagu 4 channel motor controller

I have a Dagu Rover 5 (4wd), a Dagu 4 channel motor controller, and an Arduino Mega 2560. I am looking for a simple image showing the wiring and a default sketch.

Any help and input would be much appreciated!

If anybody knows how to do this, I would appreciate the help.
