Still trying to get the L293D to work...
Nice start. It's amazing how much quicker a project goes when you use hot glue instead of worrying about removable connections like bolts and brackets, huh? :)
Hot glue all the way! To make soldering easier on yourself, buy a good soldering station. Nothing radioshack sells will do the job right. Spend $90-120 on either a weller or a hakko. My weller broke. I now own a hakko. The hakko has not broken :-D It heats up in less than 15 seconds which is quite useful.
Good luck, and our robots shall drum to the death someday.
although I dont think im willing to spend so much on a soldering iron when im not gonna solder much... i bought 100+ female jumpers + 50+ f/m jumpers... I just need to solder header pins on and im good to go!
