HK-282A 2g servo/geared motor

Hi. HK have what I think is a fairly new 2g servo, the HK-282A. 2.56g according to my scales for the 'single-screw' version. Putting it on a diet as shown I get it down to 1.9g. Quite a nice companion for the 1.7g linear servo.

At $3.99 it's cheap enough to experiment with. It has a 10ohm 4x8mm pager motor. I canabalised one to make a nice small geared unit. The servo has a steel 1mm pin on which some gears pivot. I used one of those gears as my main gear and the other as the shaft holder. Another gear with a smaller hole became the stop to hold the shaft in place. The shaft is 1mm carbon and the main drive gear is cyano'd in place as it is a loose fit on the 1mm shaft. A 45mm plastic prop of unknown origin draws 140mA at 4v. The finished unit without prop or connector weighs 0.54g. With prop it's 0.83g.

I have a drill bit set which increments every 0.05mm or 0.1mm from 0.3 to 1.6mm. They are not very expensive. I found this useful for reaming out the gears and prop where necessary.
Regards, David.

Great work! Very inventive on the power unit. Can you measure thrust?

No sorry, I've not got a rig for that yet.

Made a rig. It generates 1g of thrust at 3v and 1.5g at 4v.

By comparison, a 4x11mm that measures about 9ohms generates 1.1g at 3v (140mA) and 1.65g at 4v (194mA) with a PicooZ 30mm prop.
