Driving DC Motor From PWM Signal

I've just joined. I've not programmed an Arduino as yet! I did not see any way of searching for relevant posts??

I have a small RC aircraft that uses a DC motor (fairly rare in the RC moddlers world). I am intending using an Arduino - perhaps an Attiny to convert a PWM signal from a receiver to DC drive to the motor.

Yes, this is the lazy approach to programming, but I thought there may be a chance someone else may have done this, and while I labour away getting to grips with my Arduino Uno board, I might throw out a feeler so I hopefully do not need to re-invent this particular wheel - and probably get a decent method rather than something clumsy from my efforts.

All suggestions welcomed.

Use the box at the top of the screen that says "search the Arduino forum".

the best part of using an arduino is the research and learning
