Rocket Brand Studios now carries the Micro Magician

 

A wonderful package showed up today and inside were the first batch of the new Dagu Micro Magician Arduino board. Put simply, it is awesome.

 

 

It is really packed full of goodness, with IR, a sweet motor driver, and even an accelerometer. Just a great board for small bots.

New LBD geared motor for small robots

DAGU have now released a modified version of our Little Black Duck analog servo.

This is the Little Black Duck servo, modified for continuous rotation with the control circuit removed making it into a simple geared motor with a ball raced output shaft. This motor is perfect for small robots and can be easily driven by an L293D or a controller with a built in "H" bridge such as our Micro Magician.

Now stuck with motors...

I am buying stuff from a local shop so that I can complete my projects. Unlike elsewhere, in this place, a motor is cheaper than servos. I have to buy from the motors on this page- http://www.thinnkware.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=39. One thing I'm stuck on is, my initial plan was to provide 4.8V to my board (ATMega 328PU+Motor Driver) by 4 600mAh rechargeable batteries (1.2V each).
