Hey there Zake,

I moved this post into its own thread, as it wasn't relevant to the Artificial Intellegence conversation.

I will need clarification on what you mean by having to sit back down and moving it?

In the meantime, check the batteries to make sure they are new. Also, a list of peripherals you have connected to the EZ-B will help us diagnose your setup.:)

I figured it out they forgot to solder one wire on the board it was hovering there in the middle
so every time i moved it the wire would connect to the metal on the board kinda like Operation
the game you touch the sides the light goes off easy fix i just soldered the wire and it is up and going. but thank you for the quick response DJ Sures.

Sure will! In fact, I ordered a bunch of them the other day. Not those ones, I found cheaper ones without the "rainbow" colors.

Here is the link to the ones i bought: L298N H Bridge DC stepper Motor Driver Board module

It say stepper motor, but the l298n is just a regular hbridge. It will work with regular 2 motor setups also. The above link has a chart near the bottom of the ad. The ad shows the input and output.

When the boards arrive, i'll throw up a tutorial video. Stuff from china takes a while to get to canada.
