This is what I was thinking about: Powering the Rover 5 motors and the Arduino board from the 7.2 volt 5000 mah Nimh battery. And maybe using two adjustable Buck Converters, one to go from the 7.2 volt to 6 volts to ru...

Pan / Tilt kit with 4 axis joy stick ?

Very new with all of this, but I have a sparkfun Pan/tilt kit, I would like to have a 4 axis joystick ( pan right -pan left- pan up -pan down) I can only find 2 axis joy stick. Would I be better off to use a 4 button pad of some kind? And if so any ideas?

Re: Motors won't shut off after 6 seconds

He does not to run over and over again. He want the tank to run forward for 6 seconds then stop then turn right- go forward-then turn right again. What he is trying to do is make the tank do one big square on the floor then stop. Is it because you can not use mills in side setup()? He put it in setu...

Re: L298 suddenly go bad?

Turns out not the L298 board but some thing in his program. When we loaded the old program everything runs just fine.
Now all he has to do is find what he did wrong.
