Left motor not working as well as right motor


#1

So, after I got my Gopigo kit, I started to build it. Before I was going to start to code it, I reaized that the left motor with the wheel, didnt make the same sound or ran as good as the right motor. Plus, I also saw that part of the wire was disconnected. Is there any way that I can fix it or buy only new motors?
I will appreciate your help, thank you.

Hey,
Can you make sure that you have updated the firmware to the latest version. You can check the current version by running the basic_test_all.py in the Python folder and giving it a ‘f’ command. If the version is not 1.2, you should run a firmware update.

Can you try swapping the motors to make sure that the problem is from the motors themselves and not from the code and can you attach a picture of the motor with the disconnected wire.
