Baby Orangutan mod?

I love the Baby Orangutan robot controller and use it for my line follower and maze solving robots. However I need every available i/o port and I don’t like giving up a valuable analog port for the onboard potentiometer. Is it possible to use port ADC7, maybe by physically disabling the pot?


There is no built-in options for freeing up the ADC7 pin tied to the user potentiometer (like a jumper or shorting block). However, you could physically remove the trim pot entirely.


Thanks Brandon. I guess the worst that is likely to happen is losing the use of a port I can’t use anyway!
