Happy New Year everyone. Slow day today. Doing some research for my door panels and servos needed.
Been chatting back and forth with Chris Grootjans in Belgium on how he went about it. Here’s a cool video of his setup using micro servos directly attached to the Robart Hinges. I really like the solution because it doesn’t need any extra push rods etc and everything is more self contained.
Full details of Chris’ setup can be found here.
Right now I’m toying with the idea of just ordering a few mini servos from ebay. Typical cost is $20 shipped for 4 vs buying them domestically where one would cost at least that much. Size is around 22mm x 27mm x 11mm, but I’ve seen them as small as 20x17x9.
Update: I never did receive my servos from china, so buyer beware, the good news PayPal refunded my money.
