Hi, can anyone advise me what I need to buy in order to control a motor I have to move forwards and backwards?
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Get access to the latest features and updates with ARC Early Access edition. You'll have everything that's needed to unleash your robot's potential!
Based on your post activity, we found some content that may be interesting to you. Explore these other tutorials and community conversations.
Other than that, add a few controls in ARC and you can be up in running in a few minutes... I do suggest you go through the learn section on here and read up on any pertinent info that will help you get started....
The motor is a DC motor it is to turn the head of an R2D2 unit so needs to spin all around in both directions with speed control.
I am an absolute novice and do not own anything at all, apart from the motor so advice on what kit to buy would be very helpful, Thanks again
You can't run until you learn how to walk first... You're going to need to learn some basics first before doing what you want to do.... That's why I recommend the developer's kit.... It has everything you need in order to master some of the basic electronic, programming and mechanical skills you'll need in your R2 project....
Oh and not dismissing your advice I will be watching youtube to get an understanding of what I need to buy
@Jayutmb Im googling Syren 10 right now, thanks
It wasn't a shot at you by the way....
But you are talking about building a custom robot, with your first question about how to hook up a 3rd party motor. Building custom stuff is going to require that you learn some things.
Luckily, a lot of us love helping, so feel free to ask questions and we'll answer or point you in the right direction.
