This is an open question on the problem of the violent twitch/swing servos have when they are first turned on and when they get their first position command. The obvious answer is to always finish a "session" by centering all your servos and then turning off, but this assumes that nothing is going to get bumped or creep out of "centered" while waiting for the next time it will be turned on. One could also center all the servos by hand (with the servo unpowered) but I have never cared for moving servos by hand if I can avoid it.
With everything I have been working on, I have been installing tons of new "com ports". Each new thing I plug in (with a FTDI in it) gets a new "com port". The problem is the new ones have pushed my picaxe sync cord to com 26. The picaxe software will not go up that high and can't find it now. How do I change this?
I have said to many people, that they are asking a question about step 487 when they have not mastered step 1,2 and 3... I write this question with that in my own mind and trying to avoid doing this myself...
Really this is just a couple questions. First off, is there any reason not to buy the cheap ones? They start at about 25 bucks and go up to quite a bit. I don't need super-duper solid data, and I will need very little range, can I use the cheap ones? --Also, and I can't believe that I can't find this on the website, but the price I am looking at is for one unit, correct --not a pair? Gimme any thoughts you have.
