Default Servo Mods, How To, with Video

Hi Guys,

If I had only known how easy it was to modify a servo for 180 or 360+ rotation, my last pan/tilt system would have been Much easier to fabricate.

Towards that end, here's some video's I created showing how I modified a pair of HS65 servos for my 2nd generation pan/tilt system.

The 180 Mod

Hitec HS65-HB 180 servo Mod (2 min 34 sec)

The 360 Mod

Hitec HS65-HB 360 degree servo mod (4 min 36 sec)

Hope this is helpful!
