  • 180 degree servo controller settings with continuous Rotation Servos, heads up.

    Upgraded our controllers to take advantage of the full 180 servo range. Used the discovery tool to set the servo port(s) accordingly. While we were there we just figured that we might as well set them all to use the full range.


    Only to find out that doing that shrinks the power range of any continuous rotation servos (we were using the 2645 - didn't test the 1425CR) such that values above 0.74 and below -0.74 will not work. The servos do not move, no errors are thrown. Probably best to just leave these ports without the extended range enabled.


    ah the old Hitech controller days where this all just worked...

    Thanks for sharing your experience. Are FTC team allowed to use HS-2645 servo since it is 7.4V max? I thought the max servo voltage allowed is 6V as per RE<10> in Game manual #1. Please clarify.

      You would have to ask that question in the official robot electronics area but I believe servos that operate at 7.4V Max are allowed to be used but we aren't allowed to supply them with more than 6V of power.
