Blynk board and DC motors


Just got my Blynk board and wanted to build my kid a remote control robot.

Have 2 DC motors as the left and right wheel.

I linked them up as such: One pin to GND, and one pin to the numbered pins.

I then made a new app in the Blink app and put 2 sliders, linking them to the numbered pins that I connected my DC motors to.

But when i slide the sliders to their max value, the DC motors dont move.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi @r0b0tn1k,
The board can manage 12mA Max per I/O pin… This is Ok for a LED, but not for a DC motor.
You should use for example the L298 Dual Motor Driver Module.
