    Hello,

    After much reading on the site, I came to the conclusion that I would follow the easy path of JRK construction with wiper motors as I don't have any particular knowledge of arduino programming.

    Starting with the electronic parts:
    2 x Pololu Jrk 12v12 USB Motor Controller with Feedback
    2 x AC-DC High-Power PSU 12V 50A
    2 x 10k Potentiometer
    2 x Worm Drive Motor 12V, 180RPM, 20Nm Torque
    3 DC 12V fan
    Heat-sink and thermal paste


    Connecting according to the photo by @eaorobbie

    The first ride. I get a lot of right-left swing.

    Hello, Happy New Year people

    I want to ask if it is possible to use
    2x Closed Lead Acid Rechargeable CSB BATTERY 12V 12AH instead of 2 x AC-DC High-Power PSU 12V 50A.

    P.S I use at the moment
    2 x Pololu Jrk 12v12 USB Motor Controller with Feedback
    2 x AC-DC High-Power PSU 12V 50A
    2 x 10k Potentiometer
    2 x Worm Drive Motor 12V, 180RPM, 20Nm Torque
