Question about cheap high torque servos
April 30, 2011
I have got some ideas for a bipedal bot, thus I need servos, that would provide some lifting capabilities. The most important thing for me is the price, since I could not afford a servo, that costs more than $10 (and even then I will eventually have to find a summer job and work my ass off to complete the project). I've managed to narrow the list to two servos : MG995 and HXT12k. However, as I can see from reviews, they lack quality, A LOT.
So I would like to hear any thoughts about these models from you guys and any related suggestions would be appreciated as well.
Also, as I can see, these servos pull some current, therefore I am wondering if such a thing as SD21 with picaxe 18m2 fitted in would handle the high currents and work without any problems? Thanks ;)
