  Important notes:

This kit uses an Arduino Compatible Mega that has a hardware USB to serial converter.  This eliminates the possibility of erasing the bootloader on the genuine arduino mega in the event that the motors are being driven with low voltage.  This happens more frequently when driving the motors with USB power.  To eliminate this possibility and ensure reliability we only offer this kit with mega with a hardware based USB to serial converter.  If you need a genuine Arduino we can ship the kits with this option, but you should be aware of the risk of driving the motors with low voltage and the risk of erasing the bootloader (it is an easy to fix but requires additional software).

A serial port driver needs to be installed so your computer will recognize this Arduino board: Serial Port Driver
