As a learning exercise, I'm slowly building a little robot based on a
Tamiya gearbox and wheels. The gearbox comes with two small motors,
each with two little copper loops for the electrical connection.
My question is, what's the best way to connect these motors to the rest
of the circuit? I don't want to just solder them in directly, because
I want something I can easily take apart and reuse. I'm thinking
something like a short two-wire cable (per motor) with a little plug on
the end. Then I can solder a similar connector on my motor controller
or whatever, and connect or disconnect them at will.
Is this a sensible approach? Is there any particular cable/connector
that is standard, preferred, or recommended?
