hmmmm unless you can get both motors to rotate the same speed, you are going to have them "fight" each other, wasting energy and possibly breaking stuffalthough in the short term, definitely a neat idea for increase torque . . .
servos have that!! omfg!~smash
serious i didnt know or serious they have it ~smash
well its a servo , so im guessing you have built in speed control
ed, I think you meant to post this link?http://www.societyofrobots.com/actuators_servos.shtmlQuotewell its a servo , so im guessing you have built in speed control but that DC motor doesn't, so if the DC motor goes too fast, the servo speed control will reverse to slow it all down (hence the bad stuff happening)
you should try doing that to a moron....wait a minute and admin on the page you linken me too you have this Click to learn how to waterproof a servo for continuous rotation. is that right???
Thinking about this, I have an ultra microservo whos gearheads trashed the first time i used it (the gears turn past the plastic stopper and this mashed them up), I might use this system with a normal motor, then i dont have a wasted servo

I should take some pictures of all the stuff I have laying around... might be over kill but im set for life lol
im hooked with this picture response thing , caught it from ed
