RF communication while using a hat?

Fri Nov 25, 2016 9:45 pm

So, I'm currently working on a robot that uses stepper motors but I also require it to communicate via RF with an Arduino nano. As of right now, I am currently using the Adafruit motor hat to drive the two steppers. The issue I'm running into is that I have this hat sitting on my GPIO pins and I also want to connect the RF transmitter to it. From the documentation, the hat is only using the SDA and SCL pins. So, theoretically, I could still use GPIO 0 (pin 11) to connect the transmitter to the pi, right? My issue is, I'm not sure how to physically do that. I'm much more comfortable with code than electronics. I don't want to damage my motor hat trying to rig something.
