*The old Maslow PowerControl board used a pair of simple surface-mount driver chips (L298P), to control the motors. Each chip can control two motors, up to a total of 4A divided between the motors.
Due to it's limited current capabilities (4A), the older version (v1.2) is prone to overheat under heavy loads. If not properly cooled, it may burn out and fail over time.
