BEGINNERS - PLEASE READ FIRST!!

If you are thinking of using MotoMonster (MM) motor driver and an Arduino for your motion simulator project then please read the following carefully to determine if it is a good idea or not:
  • Are you are a complete noob and you defy any wiring experience? (BTW no electronics knowledge is needed)
  • Do you hate reading (easy) manuals?
  • Are you using 300W or lower powered motors with no plans to expand your system at some point in the future with stronger motors, like DC winch motors?
  • Do you have a tendency to rush into jobs?
If you answered Yes to any of the above then please consider using JRKs rather than Arduino and MotoMonster. JRKs are more expensive but are easier to setup and configure.

If you do plan on using MotoMonster and an Arduino (which is a great choice) then please ensure you read, fully understand and follow all of the guides in the FAQs before posting a question:

http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/arduino.6/category
If you follow all these suggestions then success is guaranteed.

Do not expect community MotoMonster troubleshooting support if you:
  • Do not bother to upload videos or pictures clearly showing all wiring.
  • Expand your system by using 4 MMs - and you use any wire colors without any logic resulting in spaghetti syndrome (eg. black for "+")
  • Ignore troubleshooting advice regarding testing your components and wiring.
