    Добрый день. Я использую схему модe2 . После прошивки , никакой реакции. Должен ли реагировать мотор с этой прошивкой на положение резистора?

    @bsft, so in other words if I find 24V motors only, what type of motor drivers would be recommended? The Sparkfun Monster allows 16v max.

    You could use a Sabertooth to drive both motors, see the FAQs for code and wiring details.

    Hi! I think I have a problem with the motors, cause the buzzer of the multimeter makes noise!
    So I've opened the motor but I can't see where it is attached to the body of the motor. The problem is that the motors don't turn in full speed backwards and when I put it in backwards the motor just stops turning after a little while. So here are a couple of photo's and a video.
    Hope someone can help me!
