Substitute Servos for $50 robot?
« on: April 09, 2008, 12:25:51 PM »
I'm trying to order all the parts needed to make my $50 robot, but the HS-311 Servo is out of stock ATM. Is there a recommended substitute I could use for the project?

You can order the HS-311 online. Go to the Hitec website, theyll have a list of online vendors that sell their products.

All the HITEC servos have the same elelectronic characteristics - so its all down to price/availability. If you cant get HS-311 then try HS-322HD. Hitec stuff is made more complex at the moment as they have just bought out a new range of stuff.

dont buy the generic chinese servos - they are a piece of crap

I only buy GWS, Hitec, Parallax, or Futaba
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

The ones I bought are actually Hitec HS-311's (so the auction said)

Hopefully they aren't piece of crap imitations O.o

Not if they're imitations, like Anoroc said.
