hi There Draziw

i Am not Quite Clear on Your USB Idea But The External 6 Volt Supply Bill used was because His motors were Rated At 6 Volt and The Arduino Nano Cannot Supply That voltage Or The Current Needed To Power The Motors It will Go Up In A Puff Of Smoke Hope This Helps

@martin-richard sorry for the long delay in responding to your inquiry. The motors I'm using come out of hand held controllers with feedback so they don't need as much power. I'm also looking at providing 5v's via a power converter. With the above setup I want to add some realism to the G29 pedals for my Sim. I just need some one to look at the schematic to see if I have it wired that I'm not going to explode or burn my place down :-))

Sorry to be so late to the conversation!

@martin-richard  You have the power supplies confused I believe. The 6-volts is indeed for the motors, and it is a separate power supply from the one powering the Arduino. 

But as for the USB, what @draziw is referring to is that he is using the USB connector to power the Nano, which is perfectly acceptable.

As long as you don't use that same USB voltage as the motor power supply, you are fine.

And the wiring diagram looks fine to me, no fears about burning down the house!
