dc motors/ servos/ steppers...how heavy is it? If its not too heavy, use servos.If it is heavier than say a few kgs, use dc motors
Read ice's cool tutorial on how to program them

I found some efficient small DC motors on CD-rom trays. The Mabuchi motors draw a max of 250mA over 5 VDC - good for autonomy :lol:
