Anybody have some extra servos???

servo robot arm controlled by potentiometers and arduino

so i made this robot using a bunch of standard servos in my last robotics class, and instead of using the basic stamp, i bought a arduino and used it to build my own robots instead of using the classes equipment. problem now is that the class is over, and i have no more servos to use :( and im an extremely poor college student. so i was wondering if anyone has extra/old servos that they might be getting rid of or something like that. just message me and we can work something out :D i do have paypal if need be

I'd imagine even the poorest of college students could likely afford that servo. At $2.99 with over 4kg/cm torque, its a beast. It doesn't have metal gears but the reviews seem to be pretty good.

$45 shipped for 10 of them, that's 4.50 a servo after shipping.

Your you tube link was incorrectly posted so I am not able to actually see how many you might need.
