Servos not moving with USC example project mini metro 18


#1

I cant get the Linux - metro app to run but I have been able to get the USC example apps to run in mono.
They connect but nothing happens. the servos don’t move. The green LED blinks when connected so Im assuming commands are making it to the metro 18
Ive tried several different servos of different types and noting seems top happen. Im powering the servos with a wall wart thats supplying 5 volts on the metros terminal. I can see that 5 volts are coming across the servo connections on the metro

I wish they included a straight forward console example application or at least took the time to comment the methods on the USC exaplme lib. I cant figure anything out from the examples. I wasted an hour messing with one example that was included that didn’t even apply to my controller.
