Thank you so much! Fun project. - AndyC159
I'm using an SG90 which is the plastic version of your one, I had the same problem. I don't think you can increase the power but you can make the switch easier to toggle by opening it and heating the spring inside. - AndyC159
Thnx - DanialS5
hii have a question.can you explain me what is this circuit below and what need to make this circuit please?thanks
Hey!I found a servo with Stall Torque 1.5kg/cm (5V).Can I use it?
Hello from Sweden and Thank You for i nice build.Im not very good with Arduino and was wondering if a Arduino Nono will work with this project ?? - ShRTee
Hello riachiThank you so much for your great tutorial.I have trouble in my useless machine. My servo can't turn off the switch. How can increase the power?( I am using MG9S right now) - DanialS5
Could you please explain about the switch. I really dont know how to do it.
hey, thats a really nice work and i liked that whole concept so far, that i really wanted to build it myself, awesome ;) ...i got most parts and i tested it on a breadboard first and i dont know, but there isnt any quiet period like on yours, those servos are constantly moving their routines and the mic doesnt have any impact on them, but reacts with its led just on the movement of a servo ... so im struck :(
Hi !!! I from france and I would to build this amazing useless box without the motor shield. Is my schema correct ? thanks if you read this
having issues and i think its my switch.. i need an on/off or on/on 3 prong? and not sure where to add debounce in code
Got an arduino board to try this, and after 3 hours of trying to upload code to it, I quit. Wasted a decent amount on cash to try and build this. -.-
I'm not savvy with electronics. Is that resistor "10k Ohm Resistor, 1/4 W, 5%"
(sorry for the wrong label on the image)it is 11.1V/1300mA, this to support the 5 V of the Arduino and servos, while the Amps to support the sudden discharge when oiO is moving.Cheersf.
Hello!(sorry for the wrong label on the image)it is 11.1V/1300mA, this to support the 5 V of the Arduino, and 6 V on the servos, along with the sudden discharge when oiO is moving.Cheersf.
"dubnikov" found a solution,by using IDE v 1.0.6 instead of the latest one. I didn't try it myself, but will try to see why is that and how to make it work on latest IDE.(thanks dubnikov)
Hello!please use the latest version of the Arduino IDE and that your board has enough SRAM, that fixed the issue for others.Cheersf.
hi & thankssorry but i have a questionin text you write oiO uses a 11.1 volt 1300mA but in picture you show oiO uses a 3.7v & 1100mah which of them is correct?please explain.thanks.
I downloaded the code that you wrote for the oi0 im building, but I keep getting the error message saying the sketch is to big, Any idea on how to fix this?
Sorry for commenting so many times I am still getting used to instructables!! Thank you for the help!!
Hi Riachi,I would like to build this useless thing too as it looks great. I'm going over my old RC stuff I have lying around and found two servo's (S3003). There is one problem: They only have two wires while yours has 3...I took one of the servo's apart to have a look inside to see if I can figure out where to connect this third wire. There is no electronics inside. Besides the 2-wire motor (duh).Will it be possible to use them or should I be looking for 3-wire servo's?Regards,Werner
What do you do when you load this code onto the arduino and it says the file is too large?
