We have a Banebots 775 motor with its power leads shorted to the case. You can imagine why this would be an issue. We are not sure whether this is the one from the kit or the additional one we ordered.
I’ve seen one other team who posted about a problem with this… (http://blog.iamjvn.com/2011/02/jvn-build-tip-test-your-775-motors.html)
Is anyone else having this issue? If you have NOT run your 775’s yet, could you check them and see if they have this problem? It would be nice to know if they are DOA or if they were damaged while running in the robot.
