Hi,
do we talk about this shield?
http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/motor-shield-p-913.html

Its a standard L293N motordriver board with clever extras. You can power the arduino from the onboard 5V regulator plus you have lots of unused pins for extra sensors.
Only thing is: the motors should be capable of 6-15V.

I have the Seeed motor shield. There is no way of connecting anything but motors and sensors to it. I have the Maker Shield and I can't plug it on top of the seeed motor shield. If I plug the motor shield on top of the Maker Shield, how can I connect wires to the black headers?
