Hi jkaskinen

A good starting point is reviewing the product page of each component individually, in particular these:

Wild Thumper: http://robosavvy.com/store/product_info ... ts_id/1176
Arduino Controller: http://robosavvy.com/store/product_info ... ts_id/1168

You then need to download the sample code in the bottom of this page http://robosavvy.com/store/product_info ... ts_id/1236 and download it to the Arduino Controller.

If you have a fair understanding of Arduino you can look in the code to understand what pin does what.

My colleague Nuno will make a post here, in reply to your question, in the next hours explaining which pin goes where to completelly answer your question. (fyi pin 1 and 2 of the Arduino control the direction and speed).
I'm just anticipating him to let you know we're looking into your question and giving you some preliminary information.

Should you need, we are also available by email on [email protected].

Regards
Pedro.

Check this image

The red and black gives power to the receiver
The yellow and the green transmits the PWM from the receiver to the arduino board.
