We should have a little bumper sticker ready to stick on all these "no-bot-yet-bots".
im sorry . but i have not chosen a controler or made a base yet ,but im thinking a tank style robot.but when the base is made then you have something to stick that bumper sticker on:)

Hello dimble swishblade,


Can I see your connections below the your K243 board? 


I have a K243 board and  I'm confused how to place the 4 MOSFETs and how to wire the motor to the K243 and the 24 volt power supply to the K243


Your reply would be of great help
