Help with modifying a servo for continuous rotation? Answered
I want to build a robot with arduino and for the motors I was going to use some servos that I could modify for continuous rotation. So, I picked up 2 cheap ones at radioshack. I opened them up and I can get to the gears by removing the top part and I can get to the back of the circuit board by taking off the bottom. But the circuit board is soldered in so I can't take it out to get to the potentiometer. I tried desoldering the connections to the motor but there seems to be more joints to desolder before I can take out the circuit board completely. And I don't want to desolder every joint and then have to solder them again when I need to put them back together. So has anyone modified these radioshack servos and can tell me how to get tho the potentiometer? Or can anyone tell me if there is a way to modify them without getting to the potentiometer?
