I Have a Single Servo Motor, What Should I do with it? Answered

I was making a robot, so I had to modify the servos for continuous rotation and I accidentally broke one. I didn't dare risk breaking the other one. What should I do with it?


Use the servo as it is to steer the bot and an ordinary motor to power the back wheels like a normal car.

how about you replace the knackered one and finish the 'bot?


That is what I was thinking. It's just that I am so impatient. I don't think I could wait that long again! That will definately stay an option!

How did you break it. They can be repaired or may still be suitable for continuous rotation anyway depending on your application - It is after all just a motor and gear box with some cunning electronics.

I forgot to mention that it is mutilated and cannot be repaired.
