Okay, yes i'm new.
So far I got all my sensors working properly but i'm stuck with the stepper motor.
First off, I know the motor needs it's own power supply, I saw a few pics of a 9V battery being hooked up to the MotorShield in VIN + GND, if i have a 12V Motor I obviously need to hook up 12V to it correct? If so do i need a resistor at all or does the Shield take care of that.
AND, what's the wiring on the motor? can't seem to tell which wire is which. this is the motor i have. http://www.adafruit.com/images/medium/12vstepper_MED.jpg
Thanks for all the help in advance!
