Can Anyone Point Me to A Source For Devloping A Servo Controller
 
Just got back into the hobby (R/C Planes) after a 20 year absence. In that time, I've learned a fair bit about electronics and have been programming and play with PIC microcontrolers for quite some time. I have PCB and CAD software and design and build my own circuit boards (on a hobby level any way). With that said, this is a fun hobby to be in these days if you can also tinker with the cool new electroncis that this hobby has to offer. What I'm looking for is a resource like "Controlling an R/C Server 101". I've got a general idea of how they work but I'm looking for a bit more detail so that I can write a quick program or two to play with.

Thanks!

Try an Arduino.

I will also suggets Arduino. For more info you can check out this link 'http://principialabs.com/arduino-python-4-axis-servo-control/'

Servos use PWM (Pulse Width Modulation), vary the pulse width to vary the servo position. Here is some background on servos
