[Dragonfly DIY] Arduino blocks: Driving a simple unipolar stepper motor

I picked up a simple stepper motor with a little driver board for about $2.50 on eBay.

Making things actually physically move with your projects is very gratifying and interesting. There are a number of ways to do it. Stepper motors are one of the simpler ways.

This particular motor and driver is a unipolar setup, which is about as simple as it gets for stepper motors. This video will go through it in what I hope is an understandable way.
