Answered: Newb problems with clawbot starter kit

Good Morning. I bought the Clawbot starter kit for my son. we assembled the kit as per instructions. When we turn on the cortex, the motors all continuously rotate. So we shut off the Cortex and did the “Getting started” first program. On trying to load it into the Cortex we were told to upgrade the firmware, so we did that. The program seemed to load, however the robot behavior remains the same.

Any ideas where we have gone wrong?


Please make sure you are using a Motor Controller 29 between your motor and Cortex.
