Title: $50 Robot Swap Outs
Post by: Parth on June 17, 2008, 08:19:46 PM
Hey everybody! I'll be posting different parts that I could swap out for the $50 robot.

As for now, I have a question about swapping out the HS-311 servos for continuous rotation Futaba S148 servos. Here is the link to them. http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/p/5385-Parallax-Futaba-Continuous-Rotation-Servo.aspx (http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/p/5385-Parallax-Futaba-Continuous-Rotation-Servo.aspx)

Would these work or not? Thanks!

All hobby servos will work, but the center location and control signals may vary a bit (no problem, just a slight tweak in code).

scratch my previous statement, i may have a fix for my problem with the hs-311 servo.  I would however, get the modified if u can. saves u some extra time.
