Motor control




I'm building a robot based on my old RC-car and an arduino. The motor-control in my cars is "mechanical" where a servo switches the motor on/off etc. I would like an electronic motor-control instead...and i'm pretty lost.

Do you know a simple motor-control that will make the motor go forward,  just for a start? ;)

I think my motor draws a lot current so L293D is out of question..
