Mods on micro servo for continuous rotation

I thought I'd add this to the other info here about the topic. I couldn't post the pictures here because they're a little to big.

Hi,

Don't worry over the value of the two resistors. They're only used to create a midpoint and while lower values mean a little more current, it also mean less chance of noise pick up.

If you glue them down to a blank piece of PCB or similar, they stand a much better chance of surviving vibrations though. As is, they'll be stressed continually.
A blob of epoxy (eg. Araldite) covering both resistors and a little of the wires would be another possible life saver.

Søren

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
Please remember...
Engineering is based on numbers - not adjectives

That's a good idea, I think I have some silicon around somewhere. I'll do that.

Thanks

Joe
