How to use a BASIC Stamp 1 (BS1-IC)?

I don't mean code, I mean setting it up physically.  Step-by-step instructions on how to connect a motor to a BS1-IC (on the carrier board).

I would like to connect 4 servos on the stamp to be programmed to walk on a biped robot.

I've tried looking EVERYWHERE on the internet.  I don't understand. :(

I have NO experience in using microcontrollers.   I really need to learn and I have no money for a BASIC Stamp 2 (which is more commonly used and easier to find instructions for).

Many thanks!

BASIC Stamp 1 help?

OK, plain and simple...

I need a 100% complete tutorial on how to set up a basic stamp 1 (I know the BS-I is horrible).


Literally everything.  All I can find are BS2 tutorials.


Thanks so much

UGV Monster truck platform

I'm planning to build a UGV monster truck, based on a Tamiya Super Clodbuster. I've heard that it's a lot cheaper if you buy it in pieces. However, I ran into a bit of a dilemma. The stock monster truck comes with a speed controller. Do I need that too (I don't need any RC functions) or can a motor controller for Arduino or Basic Stamp do the job too. I already own a BS2 with BoE, but I would like to buy an Arduino because it's cheaper, open-source etc. Note: I'm still a beginner in robotics.
