Raspberry Pi – How to control motors…

In this tutorial I show you how to control a motor with your Raspberry Pi. By the end of this tutorial you will be able to control the direction of the motor, you will understand the basic principles of how that motor works and you will be able to decipher a simple Python program. Personally I think that controlling motors is one of the coolest things that you can do with the Pi and I truly hope that you enjoy this tutorial! Sorry for the long delay in between videos!
