Is there a secret to getting the picaxe to power a pager motor, for example, one capable of swinging a small drumstick?
I'm working with 3 GM10s. 2 for the wheels via the L239D, and one for a "percussion actuator". The percussion actuator's not working for the controller:
1 gm10 wire connected to pin 4
1 gm10 wire connected to 0v
5.5 V single power supply
ANY combination of Darlington / no darlington / 330 ohm resistor / motor driver in or out
