Servo Hack to power RepWalker RA04 - steamboat - 05-06-2014 08:57 PM

I changed Sho's RepWalker design to be able to use standard servos as muscles for the RepWalker. These are easier to source and cheaper to buy than the original muscels. In general these standard servos have a mounting size of about 40 mm x 20 mm. They should come with a rudder horn disk of about Ø 20 mm.

Today I got my delivery from HobbyKing.com . It is the HK 15268A to find by the code 9225000011 at Hobby Kings web side. 9225000011 It is available in all Hobby King warehouses around the world for about 5$. You also can take every other standard servo with this outer dimensions. But it is not for sure that you can hack all of them.

You can Hack the HK15268A without soldering and still fine tune the zero position once. The HK15268A also comes with two integrated ball bearings and one brass bearing. So you get quite something for your 5$. In the moment I can't tell you how durable it is...

Will add the pictures and text about hacking later...

I should have 6 from HK by the end of the week! Just in time for final assembly this weekend.
