I did not unplug all the wires off of the hat.

Re: Stepper Rotates Clockwise No matter what

1) Did my drivers get fried because of this board being backwards? Likely not. 2) Is the choppiness correctable? or did the boards fry my drivers and I now need new ones? This is usually when the stepper driver coils are not hooked up correctly or when the stepper driver is to weak to step at full ...
