Connect to CRICKIT

Once you've installed your obstacles on your course, connect them to CRICKIT as pictured.

  • Connect the DC motor powering your windmill to CRICKIT's motor block in position 1. 
  • Plug servo motor into CRICKIT (making sure the brown/black wire is facing inwards).
  • Connect the Battery pack to the CRICKIT and make sure the switch is turned ON

If you need to extend your wires to position the obstacles where you want them, servo extensions can be found here and jumper wire extensions can be found here.

Use double sided tape to stick servo-controlled gate and CRICKIT in place on the course. 

If you find your motors struggling, check that your batteries are fresh!

If you're interested in adding even more obstacles, or having a permanent installation - a 2 amp power supply or 4 Amp power supply can be used and should be able to handle the power needs for as many other motors you want to add!
