4 Servo Motors w/ 1 NXT

Hi guys,

Is it possible to connect four servo motors to one NXT module?

I know there are only 3 output ports, however I wasn't sure if anyone found a way around this.

Thanks again!

Yaw Rate Sensor

Hi everyone,

I'd like to use the NXT for a new school project. I need to measure yaw rate to control the system.

Does anyone know if there is a yaw rate sensor available for the NXT, or how to measure using standard sensor hardware?

I appreciate your responses!

Re: Mindstorm NXT Software Requirements

Thank for the quick replies Matt/Muntoo.

Matt, for Windows 7-64, is the software good to go out of the box or are there some specific drivers/firmware that I need to download prior to installing the NXT software?

Thanks again.

Mindstorm NXT Software Requirements

Hi,

I'm really interested in getting the NXT 2.0, however I'm seeing mixed information about OS requirements.

Can someone please confirm what are the OS requirements for this system?

I current have a laptop with XP 32 bit and another with Windows 7 64 bit.

Thanks!
