    Salamanderking RF servo help

    Hey guys I recently acquired a salamanderking RF servo but I have a couple of questions about it as I bought it secondhand and I'm pretty new to this. The control switches and board are already installed in the gauntlet.
    1. Do I need anything else than whats in my kit such as whats required in the zipzap tutorial?
    2. The servo turns 180 deg at a time ,should it? and do I need to adjust this?
    3. Whats the extra stuff in my kit for?
    4. Servo gets really hot is that normal?

    I have a Bobamaker RF stalk

    Salamanderking RF servo help

    PM Salamander King. He's always gotten back to me relatively quick. I didn't have servo problems but did with my RF lights and he knew exactly what it was and with his help was able to get it working. Good luck!

    Re: Salamanderking RF servo help

    Hey F4R I used the servo arm attachment mentioned in the zip zap tutorial but I got mine from a Canadian site "robot shop" I think it was. They only charged me something like $10 to ship the $10 part to Australia whereas the site mentioned in the tutorial were going to charge $60! This setup worked great but was a fast movement up and down and I had to use the on/off switch to stop the servo otherwise it would try to keep going and kill the life of it. I have since upgraded to SK's new kit and it's great, adjustable rotation length and speed but I haven't changed mine out of the box. Fantastic!
