Hey guys, I have been working on a servo for months now, and I present to you my findings and design for a cheap wiper motor servo! I spent probably..... 30 or so dollars on components and motor. I made some vids explaining the build.

I see the potentiometer, the wires to the receiver,and two for the motor.
It is therefore with a microcontroller in addition that gives a complete servo electronics for less than 18 amps, but how many volts ? .

returns of a user?
Excellent address anyway thank you.

The same with a brushless?

Thank you Thorstenhh!!!!!

Finally a cheap and effective solution for those whom are electronically declined as myself. I got mine from lipoly.de daniel was very helpful! And it even supplies power to the receiver.

And a test with a weight attached to the end of the servo arm?
Because it is in small movements around neutral under stress that electronic smokes

Not homemade, but in this year will be available by us: [link]http://mammuthworks.com/products/mammuth-servo/[/link]

We're planning smaller, lighter servos after the first successfull tests. This one is the biggest for R/C world, we will use it for steering and for braking in the Rewarron.

I'm really in need on how to make my wiper to steering servo. I've seen that schematic diagram above but don't understand them. can anyone just tell my how to connect the wiper to h-bridge like the L298n circuit.I'm really desperate on some advice.Been searching the net about how to make a wiper servo.Have already the wiper motor but don't know what circuit should buy to assemble them.Hope to hear from anyone one.I bought a 40kg servo but i got fried and have heard about the wiper servo.but i'm no electronic minded but really easy to be thought hope to hear from anyone.

Looks like a project I am yet to start, it looks like you are replacing the quad frame with a better chassis, Correct?

Seriously don't bother with the H-bridge, use a commercial product like the Baby Bully servo amp I linked to earlier in the thread, saves a lot of heart ache for non electronically minded builders. I would have ended up spending more on components than what the Baby Bully is worth, the H-bridge needs a control circuit that takes the input from the RC receiver and converts it to signals to operate the H-bridge, the H-bridge is only the high current motor switcher.

Cheers
Nick

Thanks for the responsed but still don't have any idea on what to make. I live in new zealand and don't know if we have the baby bully servo.is it a circuit or is it a servo?have spent heaps already on servo and it just can't steer my project. I saw some good video of wiper motor being the steering servo. Do you know how they do it? Pls need your help. I can be easily instructed on what to do.I got a wiper motor at the moment and thats it.hope to hear from you again or anybody there with a good heart.thanks

Write to us: info@mammuthworks.com.
We've three different servo solutions, maybe one of them could help and you don't need to solder your H-bridge
