Featuring fully proportional forward and reverse speed control, this servo enables precise movements of robot designs. Unlike other servos that have a limited range of motion, this servo rotates continuously in either direction – as needed for wheels. This high-quality servo is designed with a wide neutral dead band to eliminate the “creep” that occurs in many other continuous rotation servos. Dual ball bearings on the output shaft ensure long-lasting performance. Note: This servo does not have position feedback.

Operating voltage: 6 volts. Stall torque: 42 oz/in.

$24.50

This standard servo features Karbonite gears nearly four times stronger than nylon.

Operating voltage: 6 volts. Stall torque: 51 oz/in.
