 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

hello i asked a question before about using rc car esc's instead of motor drivers.  all was working well until i discovered that the brake function in the esc was interfering when i was using the servo library to control the esc when i have the object avoidance code running. so i thought that would it be possible to wire two arduino motor controllers in parallel to increase current output?

here are the motor drivers:

Yes, you can hook most H-bridge motor drivers in parallel to double the current handling capability.
