Hi - I've got lots of programming experience but no electronics experience (like, I've never touched a resistor before, or used a soldering iron), and I'm just going through the $50 robot tutorial shopping list to start making my first robot.
I was looking at onlybatterypacks.com for the recommended 6v battery packs but I don't know which connector to choose (i.e. which connector fits with the male header that I will put on the pc board). There are a bunch of choices (futaba, hitec, molex, mini-t, bec, kyosho, tamiya, etc.), and it looks like a bunch of them are about the right size, but I wanted to see if one was best.
Also, the choices have "Male: battery side" and "female: charger side", and I assume I actually want "female: charger side" despite the fact that it will be from the battery pack, since I will plug it onto male header pins? Or am I mistaken?
Thanks for the help.
And thanks for the tutorials - they make a quite daunting task a little less frightening.
