    Hey, so I'm getting the electronics together for my build, and have decided to go the Raspberry Pi/ CNC hat option as I want this to be a portable set up and self contained. I have bought the MegaPi hat from Makeblocks and the stepper drivers and also the Raspberry Pi CNC Hat V2.58 - GRBL v1.1 Compatible.

    So my main question is are these both created equal? And are the DQ542ma drivers or similar a must or can I just use the DRV8825 or A4988 drivers? I'm a little confused as to which option will be the best in the long run.

    Thanks in advance
