    Hot Servos

    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?

    Re: Hot Servos

    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.
