Servo motors are commonly found in most RC cars, trucks, planes, and helicopters – but these useful motors are also perfect for general robotics and tinkering as well! A servo motor is essentially a small DC motor, gearbox, potentiometer, and motor controller all stuffed into an easy to mount package. Generally these motors are used in situations where something needs to be moved back and forth or rotate less than ~180 degrees.
Servos are the easiest type of motor to hook up to a microcontroller or single board computer – simply provide them with power and a servo signal – and that’s it! These are great for beginners as they don’t require complex integrated circuits to drive them. This specific servo has approximately 2.5kg-cm of torque and runs on 3.5V to 6VDC.
