Hi everyone. Just a quick question.

How do I adjust the speed of the continuous rotation servo speeds? I have followed the video tutorial of DJ's Boxbot, and I have tried to adjust the forward and reverse values but it made no difference. The servos are the one's supplied with the dev kit.


I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!


Changing the numbers in the Modified Servo panel work for me no problem... Try setting 180 to something like 130


The closer to 89 you get (in either forward or reverse) the servo will slow down... 89 it will stop....


Thanks Richard. I'll give it a try a little later.



Cheers Richard. I made the mistake of thinking 1 was min speed and 180 was max because they are continuous, but of course this is where you change the values if a servo moves in the wrong direction. I feel a bit silly for asking now.

I do have an additional question on the subject. Is there a variable control for these servos like a slider I can use?


Any digital servo horizontal or vertical control will work. Also, the auto position Movement Panel will work.
