MicroPython Board With a Crystal, and a New Motor Driver Board

So, I ordered a few of the crystals Damien used on the official MicroPython board, and although physically it isn't a perfect fit, it works, so I now have a nice clean board.

I also got rid of the orange LED, and replaced it with a proper blue LED (I didn't have any of those left when I put the board together). So, everything is as it should be, and is working nicely.

I also ordered a couple new motor driver boards, and have one hooked up now - it is working great. uCee will be back together again shortly, driving around with my custom MicroPython board (all the videos shown up until now were with the Teensy 3.1 running MicroPython).

Things are back to working, which is a good thing. I'll be bringing uCee (along with Roz) to PyCon in April in Montreal, since both robots are powered by Python.
