I have this 12V DC Gear motor, but I can't find much info about it online. The reason I have bought it was that I found this particular motor across several tutorials on how to build an RC car.

I will be using the L298N Dual H-Bridge Stepper Motor Driver to control four of these motors, and while I wait for it to arrive, I've started working on the software. After some research online, I have determined that the PWM frequency to be used varies depending on what motor/motor driver is being used.

That said, I would like to ask people who have used hardware similar to mine what PWM frequency should I use to use these motors optimally?

Thank you in advance.

A frequency around 200-400Hz is fine. You have a larger range of duty cycle at low frequency.
