For the Dagu Wild Thumper 6 Wheeled platform, or any multiple motor system, do I really need 1 battery for each motor? Or should I just buy 2 for either side of the platform. In addition, for larger motors like the ones on this platform, how do I deal with the power generated from a coasting motor?
I want to jump into the deep end with robotics, as I already hold all the programming skills, and I realize a platform of this magnitude may be a difficult endeavor.
Recommended motor voltage is 2 – 7.5 Volts, so should one use two 22 Volt batteries for the left and right side, or six 7.5 volt batteries?
