I am using Mini Maestro 24-Channel USB Servo Controller (Assembled), I have a EMAX ES08MA II Micro 9g analog servo connected. I also have a 6v power supply. the servo gets hot even though its rated to operate at 6v. and its under no load… just sitting idle.
anything i can do to configure it to fix this?
If your servo is getting unusually hot with no load, then it is likely either poorly tuned or damaged in some way. Unfortunately, there is not much you can do from the Maestro side. If you do not need it to resist motion in between movements, you could try setting a target position of 0 to stop sending servo pulses on that Maestro channel, which should cause the servo to stop trying to hold its position if it is an analog servo.
