I want to order some small stuff, but it looks like they doesn't ship to Holland


Hi Guys,

The past few weeks I was very busy with an Roll en tilt compensated glasfiber mount. The tilt is 1:3 geared, and the roll is done by bearings, just like the MKTR mount.
I will offer these mounts soon for at least half the price you pay for the MKTR.
The problem is, i'm now very busy with the prototype, but the only thing I need to have are some gears from servocity.com.
I mailed them a few weeks ago, and after one week of waiting I finally received a reply,with the message that the shippings costst for some gears ( 4 gears, just for the proto) will be 36 dollar! I couldn't believe it, so i emailed them again, but till now I still havn't received any email from them.

I can't place an order at there site, because I don't see my country in there list, and I still havn't received any email, so this is the only way for me.

Is there mayby anyone who can order some gears from servocity.com and ship them to me?

I would be very, very thankfull if anybody would want to do that.
It's just for an amount of 13,62

I need them very hard, ant can't find any alternatives..

Thank you very much for any help, or suggestions.

Hi Jeff!

Thank you very much for your'e help. I Really apreciate.

I need some gears that's fits Futaba. I need to make a 1:3 gear reduction.
I can't find it on your'e suggested sites..

Damnit, but, it's one step closer. I will search for robotic stores.

Remy the steps you want to get rid of are mainly produced by the controller not the servo itself. A servo is just a small dc motor with some gears and a pot meter. Some stabilizers or receivers have a very bad resolution and that produces the steps.

I Know Hugy thanks, but it isn't the answer I am looking for.

I just need some gears to fit Futaba ( 25 tooth) but can't find them...

Hi servocity. I Think that was the problem. I already filled in the Form for foreign customers, en after that I immedeatly getted an answer.

Thanks, I made an order

Btw, brian, how is it possible that I must pay 36 dollars for shipping? isn't it possible to send it in a envolop at my own risk?

Doesn't matter. i already placed a bigger order.
