Re: Raspberry Pi - How to control motors...

UGH! Apparently this isn't the only thread where this problem has been brought up. Augustus fried his Pi used to control a RC car because he followed the directions in the video. hades1989 fried his Pi after following the video to connect the L298N to his obstacle avoiding car. How many more are the...

Re: RPi Rc car not working ok

It is *extremely* unlikely that my tutorials will ever kill your Pi - do you want to know why? Because I test them all myself. On all of my 4 Raspberry Pis of varying denominations. With different SD cards. And not one of them had any problem with this video: they all worked perfectly and I have us...
