Proper Heatsinking

If you are going to be powering your drive at 3.5A or above or in a warm environment, be sure to heatsink the drive as below. If you are using G250 drives without the heatsink sold by Geckodrive, then you must use kapton tape or a hard anodized third party heatsink to electrically isolate the IPAK MOSFETs on the bottom of the drive. Failure to do so will cause irreparable damage to the G250 as all MOSFETs will short together.
