I am planning to build a robotic arm using DC geared motors instead of servos. This choice was made since DC motors can rotate 360 degrees and are easier to program.

Are there more disadvantages when using DC geared motors?
and what are the advantages of using them on servos?
servos probably are the easiest actuators to use programming-wise, as they only need PWM input
When you say "servo" here, I presume you mean "cheap RC hobby servo"? Because most servos used for non-hobby purposes use RS-485 or CAN or similar digital control busses.
Hi,are the Dynamixel AX-12 or Herkulex DRS-0101 controlled using PWM or I have to use a custom controller? I can see that the harness consists of 4 wires not 3 and the servo have 2 connectors? Why is this please? Thanks.
