  • I just wired it up - it wasn’t too hard, but took a bit of swapping to get the rotation going (if they’re swapped around, then the motor will just vibrate or step back and forth).

    For the record, my wires are like this:

      M1   GND   M2
     B  Y   X   G  R
    
    X is no connection, B/Y is the Blue/Yellow pair, G/R is Green/Red.
    

    Motor connections 3 and 4 are the same, just rotated 180 degrees on the board(swap M3 for M1 above, and M4 for M2).

    This assumes that the colours don’t change, but given that they’re on the data sheet, it’s probably reasonably safe ;)

No public wish lists :(
