During the calibration cuts process, my sled fell from the frame due to the chain tensioners not really working correctly.
No biggy. I restarted calibration and tightened up the kit bungee cords by wrapping them a few times around the frame. I believe this to have overloaded the motors, subsequently burning up the left motors chip on the shield.
The current problem is the left motor will not do anything while hooked to its designated port on the shield. I’ve swapped cables and plugged the left motor into the right motor’s port and it functioned eliminating a bad servo or cable. I’m Leaning toward a bad shield.
Has anyone had this problem? I noticed shields are sold out. What is the IC that runs the motor?
