I was wondering why it is that some servos can get really hot, even to the point of melting them.
I was aligning the servos of my robophilo (my first humanoid, who i still havent finished!) and the
servos got really hot, and disconnected the power to those ones before they melted? I s there
anyone who can help me woht this, or at least explain?:confused:

Too much load on the servo
Or Servo all the way against its stops
Or Servo left in one position too long

Solution: Don't do any of that.
