Wiring updates

While I am busy polishing up the new thread and class based python code, here is a pic of the Motor controller to H-Bridge wiring (yes, that is a USB to motherboard lead). The Li-Poly battery runs the motors and the 6xAA batteries run the electronics. This may seem counter-intuitive but I wanted to have a rechargeable battery for the motors, and I will be running most of the electronics off the 6xAA batteries. I will upgrade the motor battery pack when the MicroClient is installed, as the weight increase will obviously hurt the runtime between charges.
