  • Regarding your new motor controller, I don’t think it’s all that reasonable to claim that using four bytes to obtain just over three-bit resolution is “great for precise control”. It seems like its main selling point is ease of use with controllers capable of 115.2kbps serial (e.g. “Great for simple motor control”) rather than performance. It also might be worth mentioning that voltage the motor sees will be almost 2V less than the supply voltage (at best) when the draw is 1A, and the drop could be as high as 5V at 2A (i.e. in the worst case you could supply 6V to the board only to have 1V across your motor).

No public wish lists :(
