Hello I am new to the bx-24 and programming so I hope you don't think I'm a chump with dumb questions. I am building a walking Robot and I want to use the BX-24 as the brain. I am going to have 17 servo motors,sharp IR range detector and a 5g accelerometer. So far it is coming together very well, I have the distance senor and accelerometer working well with the BX-24. My problem is
