Small project (continuous rotation servo)

For a very long time I’ve been a little bit obsessed with continuously rotating servos and searched quite a bit for them online, but never finding any cheap servos available.

Probably just me being a lousy google user, but anyways, I started looking up some mods the other day and today I finally spent 2 hours to modify some old crappy servos to see how it works and… to my suprise, it actually works, even though I used lousy 5% 1/8W resistors (recommended 0.1%) and having my 1,5 year old kid sitting in my lap while doing most of the modifications.

As always when it comes to adafruit, I highly recommend their tutorial http://learn.adafruit.com/modifying-servos-for-continuous-rotation/overview.
