Has anyone tried/been able to get a quadcopter flying using an Arduino paired with an Adafruit motor shield? Answered
The motor shield can be found here. Its probably a dumb question as the L293D drivers can only provide 0.6A max current per motor and most of the brushless DC motors I've seen used seem to require more current. Perhaps I'm mistaken. Also, I've read that one can piggyback the L293Ds to get more current. Would this be a possible solution if a single chip can't provide enough current for the job? Perhaps using conventional ESCs that can provide higher current are the only way to go? I'm very new to tinkering with Arduinos/motors/electronics in general so any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
