I’m using one of these for an r/c car project. The power is coming from 4 AA batteries. So, this is only 6v.
Is it recommended that I plug the 6v into the RAW or 5v (Vin / Vcc) pin to power the board.
If I plug it into the RAW will the 5v rail actually provide a full 5v?

I was using the the sketch and information posted by ‘El Hombre Mecatr?nico’ and I was able to get my project running but it wouldn’t remain stable. At times the SPI bridge would be unworkable for days (multiple resets).
I modified my program to use SparkFun’s code in this tutorial and everything works perfectly. No hang-ups. No unresponse SPI bridge issues.
This is definitly the solution for everyone. I really appreciate the fact that they took the time to put this together. Just wish something like this existed two months ago when I first purchased the board.
No public wish lists :(
