I am a simple and honest man, I saw this : # Mini Maestro 12-Channel USB Servo Controller and I loved it.
That is all I need to my project, I need to control around 6 servo some 180 others continuos rotary … but the point is that that hadware is perfectly integrated with the Pololu Maestro Control Center.
So for me it means I only need to install the software + wire the servos + configure the software + upload … that easy. I see that I can skip 200hours of learning servo programming and pain of verifiying code.
But I am a simple crafter … I see the price and I get scared, meanwhile arduino servo shields are sold for less than 4$ … and on the other hand the Maestro 12-channel is for over 30$.
So my main doubt is:
- Can I use an arduino servo shield with an arduino uno and somehow export the code from Maestro Control Center?
I imagine I wont have the real time controlling as the hadware of Pololu compability does … but hey !!! I am not a professional that can invest that much in hadware. Actually all the servos I have I got them for 30$ in total and they are MG996R
Anyway, any advise would be very appreciated, even though I probably end up getting the Pololu servo controller hadware, I still need to understand if I can export to arduino some how, as I can split the diagram to 2 hadwares … the pololu and arduino nano.
Please be honest, I already know how good Pololu hadware is.
