This back to basics video shows how failing to centre the servo can lead to unexpected results. We then go to demonstrate how to correct and install a servo for turnout control with a minimum of fuss. Video here
In this video we examine a few different R/C servos and surface mount a couple alongside turnouts on an N gauge test track. We also introduce a miniature linear servo and demonstrate this operating OO turnouts. Operated by a MegaPoints Servo Controller we complete the video by a short running session and preview Automatic Brake […]
Part one shows the removal of the guts and installation of a servo (HobbyKing HK-5330). The unit is hooked up to a MegaPoints Servo Controller and tested.
