A quick video of the servo and mechanism all connected up. I've spotted an interesting issue with these positional servos. When they power up the driving software has no idea where the servo is position so it will send the signal representing the centre position (which is configurable). The servo will move to that position as fast as it can even it it's right at the limits of it's positioning. Only after it reaches that point can the software attempt to control the speed of motion by sending a series of positions with delays between them.

 

 

This should be the last of the mechanical based posts and I'll switch onto electronics and software.

Hopefully there will be another installation of Hans and Matilda tomorrow but it might be delayed until slightly later in the week.
