where to start
« on: December 08, 2009, 10:19:45 AM »
Hey guys and girls

ive been waiting to start doing some robitics for some time now but i cant rely figure out where to start, i bought a set of servos and a receiver for about £15 but i dont think they work and they seem to be too old and incompatable with other parts i can find on the web, can anybody recomend any places to buy sevos, or motors and a receiver from somewhere cheaply and somewhere thats begginner friendly please?

Hi,

RC-Servos all use the same coding scheme.
You could make a cheap servo tester to see whether they work or not and it might come in handy later on as well.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
