Servo shield to control small motor (not servo)?
« on: November 23, 2013, 04:46:34 PM »
This is probably a simple answer ('no')  ;) but can I use the servo shield to control a very small motor...to run it forwards and backwards (with no feedback of course)?

Thank you
Ruben

Hi Ruben, no the servo shield does not have enough drive strength to drive motors, it is intended only for servos (standard and continuous rotation version)
