not sure its that easy... controlling the direction of a dc motor is just flipping the polarities... in a servo, there is an input voltage, then there is a pulse "info" sent to tell what direction to turn then add a rotation counter and some gears... those are the components of a servo, and im not the guy to say how to build that. its also used with a microcontroller.... so like i said its not simple at all
