    A good link for hobby servo brackets to be used in robot design

    http://www.tetrixrobotics.com/Buildi...?art=3205&ap=3

    Always had questions about how to mount a hobby style servo into a robot.

    Wow. Tetrix look amazing. I didn't see a price anywhere though.

    Re: A good link for hobby servo brackets to be used in robot design

    Hi Bill
    I am planning to get more HV300's to start my project. may be total of 8 for leg test. not sure about my bigger picture of the bot yet. may be a 50-60cm size, 4kg?
    Do you think HV300 is a good start point? (I will change the servo inside electronics later).

    From what I have seen they do look good, but I never got around to properly testing it. Specifically I wanted to figure out its moving torque and if they get super hot when continuously loaded.

    From the test you have done, I have seen more than 1A on your meter. Let us just use 1A for the heat calcuation, that is 12W, which make it into a small heater. Aluminum case should help the heat dissipation, but still it will overheat.
    But I don't think it will be worth than any other servos providing the same torque and speed.
    Wattage is the wattage.

    These brackets and systems look almost EXACTLY like the stuff that Lynxmotion makes...

    I wonder if they are a distributor/rebrander of Lynxmotion. If not, perhaps Jim Frye needs to be aware of this if he has copyrighted his designs...

    When it comes to pre-made hobby servo mounts, I've always gone through Lynxmotion (or you can buy them here at Trossen since they are one of the distributors)...

    www.lynxmotion.com

    Jim Frye, the owner, is a very down to earth guy and is always developing new brackets as the need arises in the community... Check them out!

    There are only so many ways to make a servo bracket.

    Thanks for the link to www.lynxmotion.com
    I was looking for a 25T spline metal servo wheel. Trossen only got the HITEC version which is 24T.
    I am going to order 10 Futaba version from lynxmotion..
