Sabertooth 2X12 R/C is a dual motor driver specifically
optimized for use in radio controlled vehicles. It is
suitable for medium powered robots, cars and boats.
The Sabertooth 2x12 R/C replaces our
2x10 RC controller.
Out of the box, it can supply two DC brushed motors with up to 12A each.
Peak currents of 25A are achievable for a few seconds. Overcurrent and thermal
protection means you'll never have to worry about killing the driver with
accidental stalls or by hooking up too big a motor.
This special R/C edition of our motor driver comes with options for exponential
control, autocalibration and built-in mixing. The operating mode is set
with the onboard DIP switches so there are no jumpers to lose.
Sabertooth is the first synchronous regenerative motor driver in its class.
The regenerative topology means that your batteries get recharged whenever you
command your robot to slow down or reverse. Sabertooth also allows you to make
very fast stops and reverses - giving your vehicle a quick and nimble edge.
Sabertooth has a built in 5V Switching BEC that can provide power to a
microcontroller or R/C receiver and a servo or two. The lithium cutoff mode allows
Sabertooth to operate safely with lithium ion and lithium polymer battery packs -
the highest energy density batteries available.
Sabertooth's transistors are switched at ultrasonic speeds (32kHz) for

Use of our motor drivers with cheap AC adapters is not recommended.
Use a battery or at least put a battery in parallel with a DC supply.
