    Default Servo Question

    I need a servo that spins round and round continiously like a motor, not left to right. When I look at the web sites that sell these, I get confused with all the tecnical jargon. Can someone get me pointed in the right direction?

    Just about any servo can be modified. Try this site. It shows you how to modify a servo.

    I bought my cheap, sloppy, high torque servos from dealextreme.com. The servo type is Mg995 Tower Pro. You should get some cheap servo extenders too. I had to buy them locally and they were pricey. Dealextreme.com has them too. Dealextreme takes weeks to get. If you need more help Vic call me.

    The servo and servodog have this small inline 3 wire connector. Without the extender, you would have to plug the servo's short wire into the servodog directly or make a funky extender. Dealextreme sells extenders dirt cheap. Buy extra servos and extenders. You may need them. Getting a new servo quickly is not cheap.
