hi, I pulled out my old BX24 to play with controlling a servo, and I am having some problems with it. I have a both a regular analog servo and a new digital servo, both are micro 9 gram servos. When I send a single position PWM to the servo it moves to that position OK, but when I try to have it move through a range of positions it messes up and just jumps around between two positions....

Hi there, I have a problem with my servo (Hitec HS-815BB). It used to work just fine. Then I switched off BX-24, and when I switched it on again, the command line of the servo must have been logic high. The servo made a long movement to the end of its range, and ever since cannot be commanded into any other positions. Does anybody know what to do in such a situation? Can the se...

For a crude prototype I used an alkaline 9v battery and regulated that down to 5v with a 7805. That sufficed (six hours, anyway) while the project only drew 30mA. I needed to add a single standard RC servo; I didn't expect a 9v battery to be able to supply the servo (at 5v) - and it, mostly, didn't, resetting the processor more often than not. The servo will not be moving much, nor ...

Hello, We're using the "Super Servo Controller" board. We want to power down the servos after moving them to a position. However, sometimes when we power down, the servo moves a few degrees. It happens at power down time; we wait about a second after moving the servo to power it down. It happens in ranges where the servo is not jittering.
