Community Question

Hi,
I have the developer kit.
I put the 6 AA batteries into the pack, connected the wires to the barrel jack, plugged it into the Ev4 and nothing. No light no sound. Batteries are brand new. I double checked the connectors in the plug and they are tight.

Any ideas why this would not work?

Also, I see in the documentation that it is recommended to have the 7,.4 v lipo pack. Why is that not included? I have made two orders from Canada and no one has recommended that. Now I have to make a third order for a $10 battery and pay and additional $10 in shipping? Come on guys.....

Yes, you haven't setup your Left and Right ports!

Thank you! I thought I had done that in the project details!

No prob! Yeah I can see that the initial wording in the control's summary window can be a bit confusing. The key word is "descriptions". The Project details are no more than descriptions rather than real port assignments.

Yah! As Jeremie said, the project details are for reference. This is because every control has unique settings. The camera control has its own servos. The continuous rotation movement panel has its own servos. Everything has its own servo settings. This is because your robot may use different servos per feature. Each feature has a configuration.

NA means Not Available, as in "you hadn't selected anything". It's an acronym that you will see often in technology, specially with options such as this.

But! Since each control has its own configuration, as described in the learn section regarding servos, the Project Details was created. The project details feature allows you to define what servos you use on what ports for reference.

There is a blue question mark in the project details that explains more.

3 am? Man I truly respect your passion! Sometimes though, it helps to step away for a day or two and let the brain process what it just learned. There's a lot of info to learn in a short period. It's dizzying! But absolutely fun and rewarding :)

Here's a good read on what a control is, and how they each have a configure button: http://www.ez-robot.com/Tutorials/Lesson/21
