4 channel controller

Service Droid Wiring w/ 4 Channel Controller and Spider Controller

Been working on wiring up Vader (my Service Droid) using a Rover 5, Dagu 4 Channel Controller and Dagu Spider Controller.  Since I've never used this channel or these boards before I drafted a poor man's schematic in Powerpoint of what I think the wiring should be.  Would appreciate a peer review before implementing it. It's a little rough, but when cleaned up it could be useful to anybody else building a Service Droid kit as well.

 

U7 got fried for some reason :(

I just got my Dagu 4 Channel Motor Controller, already a small part gave some smoke and one motor channel is not working anymore.

All four wheels were turning at the same time before the channel4 got fried.

Connections:

  VCC to Arduino 5V

4 PWM on the motor controller to 4 PWMs on the Arduino uno.
