If you have an arduino I could give you the code. There are knock off arduinos that cost about $6 that will do the job. This does not seem practical since hobby grade rc + toy-grade rc= not much better toy. eBay.com and nitrorcx.com are cheap suppliers of hobby grade rcs.

Your "servo" must be a DC motor wired to an H bridge to give forward and back turning.

Just replace it with a standard RC servo - HOWEVER your then going to have to find a suitable signal to drive the new servo - may not be that easy.

Why do you need to change it?

Need Pic make model.

To little information to say for sure you may need to make an interface circuit alter the main board or both.
