Do you know where can I find the 1.5V motors?
DYLEGO maRiigeL5 years ago
ok so wen i press the switches they turn the motor in reverse. otherwise, motor not on. the third connection forms a T or a + with the paperclip in between the motors. im not great at soldering, but nothing is wrong with the joints. no switch until it works.

SPDT SPDT
C NO NC NC NO C

OMG!!

the motor reverse, that is good. You need to plus the (+) to the NC of the SPDT switch

and the (-) to the NO of the SPDT

I think you did that. Take you multimeter and measure on the NC and NO of one switch, You should measure 3V. Right now, that is why it does not work.

BATTERY
{red to NC} = not working
{BLAK to NO} = not working

bad problem with the alligator clip
That T connection, seem not connected? Solder it!!

Everything seem nice, the problem is an BAD connection.

Good luck

muy bien! y tu?
wait so u think the problem is the alligator clips? the third conection isnt soldered because i will be putting in a switch(on off). If its not the battery, could there be a problem with the SPDT switches? there are no bad solder joints, i checked them twice after school today. ill solder the red and black wires and see wat happens.
maye you have a difrent kind of switches
CUAL ES EL COSTO EN TOTAL DE EL ROBOT?
