Did you test motors seperately with a battery ? That should work. Maybe motor driver is bad. I have had some that did not work brand new.

hi

indeed i put 6 volt straight on and nothing works.first time i put 7.4 volt on from the lipo batt.is that the reason that the motors are death ?

#5

That looks really great - seems the two robots combined were made for each other!

Very well done Patrick! What fun. I'm glad you got past the motor trouble and got him running. Now you can spend time programing him to do more things like bringing you one of those famous Belgian beers that taste so good. Grin
