Rduino or PickX

Hey, I want to make a quadraped...

But I am confused b/w Picaxe 28 pin project board and Aurduino Duemilanove....

Please suggest me which one I shall use....

I know picaxe is easy and I have experience over it...but I want to ask those who have experience with Aurduino..Is it BETTER than picaxe \ just slightly Better or even worse...

 

(I have basic knowledge of C for arduino programming as well)

Please do mention if there are some/any drawbacks of picaxe for using in Quadbot...

:)

Why wasn't my circuit working?

For my second Bot, I had used the following circuit:

This is my final circuit, but before that, I had made the circuit here:

But I wonder why it didnt work, In this circuit, i used two seperate batteries, using -ve of one battery and +ve of the other to complete the circuit...
