Quick question
« on: November 15, 2007, 05:48:14 PM »
What would be the best micro-controller to use with 5 HS-422 DELUXE servo motors from HItec. I would like to modify my new robotic arm kit with a micro controller so I could have it work together with my boebot. I only know PBasic so far but I doubt learning other microcoller languages could be that hard.

my bad there was only 2 HS-422s, 2 HS322HD DELUXE, and an HS-645MG ULTRA TORQUE servo but there all made from the same company and have the same connectors

All servos use the same signals to control them, as long as the microcontroller can send out pulses 1ms to 2ms long, it would work.

Yea , I use PicBasic to the the pulses, its really easy


however AVR is much more versatile , but I find that it takes longer to make a project with AVR than with PIC ( mostly cuz I get PICs for free and have a wide selection to exactly suit my needs)

Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!
