I am TankMan and very gratefully received a Raspberry Pi B+ for Christmas 2014.
A month later I equally gratefully received a project pack of components and am slowly learning linux, python and electronics.
I went to the Raspberry Pi Third Birthday Party and met Pimoroni’s gadgetoid and jon, who both very kindly helped power my fledgling tank project using the Explorer Pro HAT.
I bought one with a view to it powering motors, sensors and hopefully a camera on the tank project and all being controlled remotely.
I have a very distant background in Commodore BASIC, DOS and fixing bits with a soldering iron - so I guess that makes me an oldie newbie.
Any help is greatly and gratefully appreciated!
