2 pin motor with r/c? Answered

I am doing a lego r/c car but I've run into a problem; I only have a 2 pin (+,-) motor for the drive, but the receiver is 3 pins (+,-,signal), is it possible to connect the 2 together, and if so how.

Not knowing that receiver, it SOUNDS like + and - are power for the receiver itself and signal is the receiver's output which would be connected to the motor. The other side of the motor would go to either + or - power -- check the receiver's instructions to find out which.

That's assuming this motor and this receiver are designed to work with each other. If they aren't, you may need a bit of additional circuitry to adapt the receiver's output to the motor's needs.
