Re: Swear the robot goes into a death spin
There is a bit more information we will need before we are able to help. For instance, when you say that you had horrible success downloading everything, what specifically do you mean by that? Were you able to download the firmware, the code, did you get any error messages, etc?
Also, what you are saying in #3 leads me to believe that you have the motors and servos plugged in the wrong way. If you reverse the way the wires are plugged into the ports, the motors and servos will move on their own (and continue moving) as long as you have a power source attached. Make sure that the wires are plugged in correctly; the Cortex and its motors/servos are keyed to help with this.
If you can post your code on here using the [code][/code] tags, this will also help us to assist you.
