  • Regarding point 4, after the description of the item above there is a note that states that the overlay is incorrect and the 10k Ohm resistor should be omitted. So the base lead of the transistor should connect directly into pin 9 of the Arduino. This fixes the problem of the motor not running. So it’s not a problem of a cheap motor being supplied, the current was just insufficient to switch on the transistor.

    Although yeah, the motor in the package wasn’t the same one displayed on this page.

No public wish lists :(
