Hi,

Hitec HSR-1425CR Continous Rotation Dual Robotic Servo 1425CR/1425
It costs around $17. Standard servo size.

I got two of them. They work well; with enough
torque. I might get the 180 degree one too.

Good luck! Kegresse

I modified a Futaba S3001 in about 2 minutes by removing the plastic connector between the pot and the bottom gear, then trimmed off the lug on the top one.

It works perfectly when plugged into my receiver. Move the sticks one way, it spins round and round, move the other way and it spins the opposite direction. So far so good.

But when I just put power to the black and red leads, it gives a tiny pluse, but doesn't go round and round. I guess that's because the signal to turn comes down the white wire, but I don't want to control it that way, just one way, then the other on a plain old switch. What should I do?
Thanks, Neal
