Debugging...

I tried the H-Bridge again today, I got it to run power through it to an LED and that worked, I could turn the LED on and off using an output on my BS2 to the transistor's gate. But when I hooked the motor up to is, the motor didn't turn on. So I tried connecting the motor up to the power directly, it ran fine, so I put the LED into the circuit with the motor and the transistor and the LED didn't light up, so I unplugged the motor from the circuit and the LED lit, so I am assuming that the motor is not able to be run through that transistor, maybe the transistor is limiting the flow, or restricting something somewhere.

How could i not get one?lol. Yeah and if your gunna buy a digital camera don't get a cheap one. I did and those are the pics it takes, so learn from my mistakes, lol.

Sorry if i seem loyal to lynxmotion, but i've used these and they worl we'll, i've tried some from parallax and had to have them replaced.

Essentially that is the same as what I am building, the IC on the first one was a HEX invertor, that would take the signal and transmit it to the base of the transistors.
