I happen to have some motor control circuits boards left over from another project that I'll use until I can design some more suitable for this project.

Unfortunately it has a serious bug where 5V was routed to Arduino Nano's Vin. Luckily an easy workaround was is to just cut the Vin pin and jumper 5V to Vin.

Board populated. The MPU-6050 is on the board, but not used. The red line in the foreground is the board bug fix.
