Ok, thnx for all your postsso far. Ive been busy so I havnt started nething yet practically with the moving robot I want to make. However I have a few questions whcih I think i need to know the answer to before actually trying to make anything.
Firstly, am I right in thinking that a continuous rotation servo only needs to be connected to one control pin as opposed to a motor, as a motor would coding such as high 1, low 2, to make it go forward/reverse.?
But then can the servo go both foward and back using coding? (I havent looked at coding for servos yet)
Is it possible to connect a motor through the breadboard without a motor driver?, (I have tried to but I coudnt see anyway)
If I use motors, why do i need a gear system? (for example I have a couple of small 5v motors, which I think is one set gear/system/speed)
Im just learning, so help from you pros will be really beneficial
I want to understand the simple stuff, before making it.
I would like to just buy servos, motors, just as spares, so that I can play round with them in future. I only have Arduino mega (ATmega1280), breadboard, 2 simple 5v motors, 3 digital output IR sensors, and LEDs, LDRS, wires etc.
What motors/ any motor drivers/ servos would you recomend?
