i can’t tell how the power is routed based on their schematic. i bought it from these guys: tkj electronics (cant get the link to work)
when i hook the power up to the 9V input, it seems to power the arduino with no issues. the reason i am interested in using the same power source is because i want this robot to be mobile. the fewer things i need to attach, the easier it will get around.
you guys obviously know about the NXT and those motors are pretty power hungry as well. i am confident rechargeable AA batteries will do the trick based on them being the power source for the NXT which can handle 3 motors.
i tried to link a video to my prototype but i cant get the links to work. do you guys block links on the forum?
