IR Receiver, motor control circuit Mabuchi RF-500TB (or similar)

Dear all,

I kindly ask you attention for a situation...

For the first time I am trying to really build a great secret product, I will tell you what it is later :-)

Now being an MScBA myself I love technical stuff but know very little about it. Basically what I think I need is an IR Receiver, motor control circuit Mabuchi RF-500TB (or similar). What I basically need and want to do is to have a motor which can be switched on/off by using infrared remote control.
