Nathan Asdourian commented on Charles Blouin's blog post Motor and propeller test jig.

"I don't suppose there is a way to make this able to respond to multiple i2c address inquiries?

"I will likely get some flack for this one but since it is working very well for me, I thought I would post and perhaps I will get some new ideas out of it that may make everything work even better.
