The L293D Motor Drive Shield arrived and appears to be made well. I mounted the Motor Drive Shield on an Arduino Mega board and all the pins matched up and attached perfectly. With any shield it is possible to connect the wrong pins however this shield is labeled so that the builder can easily visually verify that they are attaching the shield to the proper locations. I am not going to go into detail or create a tutorial on how to use this as everyone will have their own use for it. It is a pretty versatile Motor driver so there are many different configurations that could be setup. For me this is just a hobby so integration with building blocks (legos) means it will serve different uses at different times where some people may be looking at putting it to a more permanent single use. I would recommend this to others who need to drive servos or motors and are working from an arduino platform.

I bought the Kuman L293D Motor Drive Shield Expansion Board For Arduino Duemilanove Mega UNO R3 AVR ATMEL KY58 because I have a project I’m working on that will require servo motors to work and don’t have much experience with them. In the process of working on my project, I figured that I should remove a few variables and by using a ready built shield, it will simplify the process of building this project. So far all initial testing has gone well and it works great.
