Why would you need or want to change your completely good servo?  It seems that servo motors are nice little gear motors that may join on to a microcontroller with out the necessity for a motor driver circuit.  The drawback is that servo motors are made to show between 90 and 180 levels, for turning the entrance wheels of a distant management automotive, turning a rudder, controlling ailerons, and so forth.

But we wish to use these low cost high-torque motors to show the wheels on our robotic.  This instructable will present you how one can make your servo spin 360 levels.

Why the TowerPro MG995?  It’s low cost and highly effective.  At four.eight volts, the MG995 produces 138.9 ouncesin of torque and spins 360 levels in 1.2 seconds.  The MG995’s are throughout eBay for slightly below ten apiece.  I may not use these to steer a $1,000 RC airplane, however they’re terrific for powering the drive wheels in your robotic.

I extremely suggest watching the YouTube video first so you’ve got an general view of what you can be doing on this challenge.
