So I'm in the market for the servos that will be used for my hexapod, the legs and body I've nearly decided on being 6061 aluminum, something I will discuss in the mechanical part of the forum. Anyhow, on to this topic.
I want something that is durable, strong enough, and a price cap of about $40
I've heard that plastic gears hold up better, metal gears are obviously stronger, what about mixed?
If anyone has a particular model they've had success with, please let me know, or perhaps suggest a particular type, I know there are tons of different servos out there, so I want to make the right decision the first time if possible. Also, something else I've really been wondering, are there standards on sizes and mounting holes? I'm using CNC on the legs, and it will use the through-mount setup, if I need to replace servos down the road and my originals are discontinued, this can pose a problem.
