Yes, if you take out the pot and replace it with 2 2.5kohm resistors in series, with the middle point connected where the middle of the pot was and the the ends of the resistors connected where the sides of the pot were.
Check out the uBotino robot controller!

i just found this video from youtube...
he makes the servo to turn(by connecting it to a battery...) and then turns the pot until the motor stops... but how does it turn again when he reassembles everything?
