I’ve got this motor I’m trying to drive. http://dlnmh9ip6v2uc.cloudfront.net/datasheets/Robotics/DG01D.pdf
When I connect it directly to 3v3 and Gnd it turns.
When I connect it directly to vin and Gnd, it turns faster.
I’m trying to control it via D pins. They output the same 3v (confirmed with multimeter).
The problem is when I connect the motor and set the pin high the voltage drops to 0.35v and the motor doesn’t spin.
If I disconnect the motor, it goes right back to 3v again.
What am I missing?
Edit: Pretty sure it’s because the Core can’t supply enough current. I’ve got a 4AA batter cell I can use. How can I go about powering these motors from the battery but controlling from the Core?
