I'm new to arduino, new to electronics, and new to this forum. I'm starting a project of controlling a toy with an arduino uno. I could use some help understanding the motors in the toy. Any information on how to measure the power requirements of a motor would be great. The ones in it are pretty generic looking, I'm assuming they are dc motors, although that is a guess. I think they spin one way and to spin the other the current is just reversed, but again kind of a hunch. Any assistance or suggestions of what I'm attempting would be great. To see more about the toy and the project check out the blog I made for the project. http://aromond.blogspot.com/
Thanks in advance for any advice.
