    Rideable Segway Clone - Low Cost and Easy Build

    Hi,Thanks for the response.I will put the resistors in circuit... just not sure what they are doing. Regarding the deadmans switch, it is not that it keeps going when released; it stops find when it is released. What happens is it looks like gyro is slightly tilted so the code thinks that there is a continuous tilt forward, and so keeps trying to go faster and faster. I can't seem to get the gyro to stablize.ThanksKevin

    Rideable Segway Clone - Low Cost and Easy Build

    Hi,Have managed to put the whole thing together and have bumped into some problems. I think I know what is going on with some of the problems, but not all and I most probably am wrong:1. When pressing the deadman switch the motors start and just keep getting faster. I think this is related to the MPU6050 being slightly tilted in the project box and the code simply thinking the thing is always tilted forward. I have tried to get this as perpendicular as possible, but can't help thinking I am missing something.2. This thing goes FAST! Unrideably fast. Is there any way to slow this down in the code?3. The circuit diagram shows a connection from 3V via a 10KΩ resistor to the SCL and SOA pins on the MPU6050. What are these for? When I was testing the MPU6050 I used the wiring diagram a...see more »Hi,Have managed to put the whole thing together and have bumped into some problems.

When I was testing the MPU6050 I used the wiring diagram at http://diyhacking.com/arduino-mpu-6050-imu-sensor-... and it doesn't have these.Note I know *nothing* about electronics :)Thanks Kevin
