how to modify an Hs-55 micro servo to act like a GM10 motor

Hi all,

 I planned to use the HS-55 micro servo for my YDM-clone, but after playing a while with an arduino, it's seems that it's not fast enough to achieve nice rythm patterns...

Do you know if there is a way to modify it to speed it? (Maybe removing the electronics or something)

if not, do you know other good alternative  to GM10 motor? as I can't find any resellers in europe  (and i don't want to pay shipping cost from UIS that double the price of those tiny motors).

Thanks in advance

Opening the servo body and connecting the motor wires directly would do the trick. It wouldn't become a GM10, but you'd be able to run it like a nomal motor...

Ok, thanks. Maybe I'll try. but in the meanwhile I've bought pololu micro geared motor that seems to do the job.


Thanks again.
