Just wanted to tell you, I put the shield together today and had the Arduino controlling a servo and DC motor, all within a few hours. I’ve never soldered a PCB before, and I followed your website for everything, including what to buy from Radio Shack 🙂 I don’t think I can fully express my thanks for your kit and your very complete instructions. It demystified a process that I found very intimidating – now I can’t imagine why I thought that. Really nice work -shoshana.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
