Thank you so much for all your help. I am a designer who has no formal knowledge of electronics. This is the largest project I have ever worked on. With that in mind I am going to ask some very stupid questions and I would appreciate you understanding.
When I connect these elements in parallel using my wall wart as a power supply I have been noticing a reduction in voltage, and I have been unable to run all the motors. and yes it is a 5v motor. I assumed I would need much more than a 5v power supply to power all these motors. I thought this results in me using a 5v regulator since my power supply would have to be much larger than 5v. is this not correct?
Can too many amps damage any of these components? You said I will have 15.5A left over can these excess amps overload the components? If so how do I protect against that.
and no I am not afraid of solder I will plan to solder the circuit.
Again please excuse my noob questions. I will look forward to your reply. Thanks again for all your help. this has been a real education.
