I want to make a line follower robot, based on differential drive. What should I buy, this or this? I was wondering.. as a beginner, is it easy to build the H-bridge for the L293d, or should I just buy the shield? The price difference is only ~2$ and I wouldn't want to miss all the fun, though
I took the motors from a cassette, so they work on 9V.
Right now I'm just buying the pieces I need, they take up to a month to ship.
Thanks a lot!
