I'm making a vehicle project as a way to learn Arduino. I've set up motor control for a number of DC-motors plus a servo via an Adafruit Motor Shield V1 that I picked up.
Everything works fine, but now I've started looking at adding wireless control for the setup using a second Arduino and two NRF24L01 wireless units. However, reading up on the specs for the NRF24L01 it seems it requires pin 12 on the Arduino, which is already in use by the motor shield.
So, can I combine a NRF24L01 and an Adafruit Motor Shield V1? And if so, how?
If it's not possible, what would be the pros and cons of slaving the shielded Arduino to a Nano that would carry the NRF24L01, versus replacing the Adafruit motor shield with external DC motor driver(s)?
I now found this previous question:
Motor shield and wireless transceiver compete for same pins
A difference in my project is that I'm not using stepper motors, so perhaps that makes a difference?
