    Default LOR's servo dog are free and will be shipped in Sep

    I got 2 servo dogs during the summer sale or at least I ordered 2. Dan said that the servo dogs would ship by Aug 15 or they would be free. If seems that the shipment will occur in Sep. I believe that amounts to about $170 for me.

    Here is Dan Baldwin's post from LOR.
    Hi Greg,

    The DIO32s will ship this month. I am not exactly sure of the date but it will be this month. The cards have been built and are in house. We need to finish some changes to the Hardware Utility and update documentation.

    The ServoDog is a different story. It looks like we will not be shipping them until early September. That of course means that we will be giving them all away for free... ( We sold less than 100 ServoDogs cards during the sale so it is not a major deal however I will be listening to "I told you so" for a quite a while!).

    We had to redesign the card a bit because during final testing I was not happy with the capacity of the on board voltage regulators and we add surface mount heatsinks which altered the board layout. The cards worked as advertised but they were not to my standards.

    So for anyone who ordered a servo dog (up until yesterday) you will get it free! Actually I said they would start shipping by Aug 15 so all I have to do is ship one of the spare, new cards that were built for testing... hummm (just kidding) that would be totally sleazy.

    I came within a hair of ordering one, but went with 2 more 16 chnl boards and the 2 CCR's instead.

    Congrats on your good fortune !

    I did a presentation at the last Raleigh meeting on servo control. The Raleigh folks got a couple ideas on how to integrate servo control into our future displays. Give our group a couple years and watch how our displays will be some of the best and most advanced in the country. I plan to integrate servos into my Halloween display this year and into next year's Christmas display. I'll post some pictures or videos when the display gets up and running which likely will be the end of September or early October due to the lack of servo controllers. I hope to have some of it up and running for the next Raleigh meeting.
