Hey all,

I've had a DFR0009 shield for a while but only today realised which digital pins are broken out. As far as I can tell, they're not documented. The analog pins and a few others on the bottom edge are labelled on the board; for some reason the pins at top-right are not labelled.

The DFR0009 uses digital pins 4-10, which means we should have access to pins 0-3 and 11-13. Well we do... the pins (holes actually) at top-right of the board are, from the right, 0, 1, 2, 3, 11, 12 and 13. See pic below...

Hope this helps other users...

DO NOT power servos from Arduino 5V: give them their own power and connect the grounds.

Thanks for mentioning this.
Iv'e got a similar board (doesn't say DFRobot or any other brand), and the reason for the missing labels seems to be a lack of space for that.
I just happened to see this myself this weekend and was planning to find out what pins are available there, you beat me to it so thanks.
Have a look at "blink without delay".
Did you connect the grounds ?

Well if yours is similar, it might not be identical. Probably worth taking a few minutes to check them with your meter to see exactly where the come from....
