I am working on a small project where i'll need an arduino to control a motor wirelessly using Xbees.
I have a 7.4v lipo battery
I am wondering will there be a problem or insuffciency if i only use this 7.4v battery to power up the Xbee-attached Arduino and the motor (DC motor controlled by a driver board) which will be supplied with 5V getting from the arduino?
Here I relate to another problem, as I am wondering if it is because of insufficient power supply:My Xbee module is behaving kinda weird. When i try to control the motor wirelessly through signals from the Xbee, the motor isn't running until I press down on some area of the Xbee module mounted on the shield attached to the Arduino
I don't think it is merely any loose pins connection of the Xbee and Arduino or the shield, because I have tested the Xbees with LEDs, they are communicating well.
so, my question now, my 6v (run on 5v) motor is not responding well to my inputs from the Xbee-attached-Arduino, is it something to do with my power supply method?
Hope you guys could help! Thanks in advance!
