Could it be because of my wiring?
it is a battery pack with 4 AA batteries
Absolute Maximum Ratings*Maximum Operating Voltage ............................................ 6.0V
*Stresses beyond those listed under "Absolute Maximum Ratings" may cause permanent damage to the device. This is a stress rating only and functional operation of the device at these or other conditions beyond those indicated in the operational sections of this specification is not implied. Exposure to absolute maximum rating conditions for extended periods may affect device reliability.
So adding more voltage is definitly not an option.
But it will still output 5V then?
It runs fine when nothing is touching the engines, but when I put the robot on the ground it completely loses its power
It has the same power.
Hmmmmm... since power is the rate of doing work
