$50 Robot Microcontroller
« on: September 10, 2008, 06:26:00 PM »
For the $50 robot I am wondering how many servos I can plug in. It looks like I can plug in 5 or 11 but I am not sure.

The answer is:
the number of I/O pins whose middle header pin (+ve) is connected to the unregulated battery supply. Note that the $50 robot leaves some I/O pins connected so you can always add more.

Thanks, one more question. What is a really powerful servo, I am building a racing robot after the $50 one.

Not wanting to be dull - but your new question is no longer about '$50 Robot Microcontroller'. Why not search for 'servos' and then create a new post if required.
