This is a commercial product that I am "hacking", so I am limited to adding something in - the MCU is a "blob".

Control as in - each motor is controlled independently - and is either "on", "off" or "reverse".  I can't control the voltage -- its almost like I just need to bring the level down.  The "on" is far far too fast so I need to scale it back.

All the feedback here has been great --- I'll be building something over the week and will report back.

Cheers all
