Micro Maestro 6 start and stop script

Hello, I’m a total beginner at this. I have a Micro Maestro 6 that I’d like to use to run 4 continuous rotation servos and 1 “regular” servo. Once I set up the script, I’d like for it to run through the sequence, then stop for 6 hours, then run again, then stop, you get the idea. Maybe turn the power to the Micro Maestro off and then on again 6 hours later. I assume I need a microcontroller to do this. Am I thinking correctly?


You could use a separate micro controller to achieve that kind of timing, but you also might try implementing a nested loop timer on the Maestro like the one in the example under “Long delays” heading in the “Example Scripts” section of the Maestro User’s Guide.

A very simple solution might be to power the Maestro with an AC to DC adapter plugged into a Christmas tree light timer.


Thank you Derrill! Sounds like I might have a couple of options, thanks again.
