Slip Ring Servo Test

I finally got a chance to fully test out my slip ring last night with some servos.

I first had to finish soldering up my little boards that would handle signal routing and power.

Rather than try and explain in words and pictures how the setup works I made this short video to try and give a good overview and show the slip ring in action.

I still need to make little brackets to secure the D sockets to the boards, and decide the best place to locate them in Artoo.

    Just wanted to say ‘Thanks’ for your very informative videos and explanations on your R2 build. The serial cable setup you have with the slip ring is very interesting.

    Your R2 site is the best.
