How to use dc motors as servos
I had a very hard time to figure out how to use a DC motor as a servo. My problem was that I wanted to control my full size R2's dome with an EZ-Builder servo control, so it would be able to respond to camera tracking and position control.

After a lot of help from genius around here, and some hard way finding out how not to do some things I finally made it.

First I must tell you that without the guiding from some of the most brilliant builders in this forum, it would be impossible to me. Thanks guys.

Ok, let's do it!
