I’ve stumbled across this thread in search for some servo “control” (not controller) help. I’m a newbie and am struggling with trying to find the right path to my ultimate robot goal. Here are my issues - I’ve purchased a BoE-bot, based on recommendations that I could expand it’s capabilities and tutor myself toward my goal of creating a puppet (a bird). My road block is that as I’m learning more, I’m either confused or uneducated that the BoE-Bot STAMP will ultimately get me to controlling 6-8 servos for my “bird”. These movements will simultaneous and not continuous, but rather exact.
If you could indulge me (and please feel free to refer me elsewhere) but could you give the me the basics of what I would need? I’ll take that info and determine the details of making it work. OH - need to add that I want to program it so it won’t be RC controlled. I suppose that means I do need the STAMP - right?
Again, my goal:
8 servos (is a step motor a better option?)
I will be happy to dump the BoE-Bot STAMP if it is an easier option to start fresh.
I thank you in advance for your help. dcg
