I feel silly asking this but from a rookie team just trying to desperately figure things out… did a servo come with our kit or do we need to buy one? I know i saw one on a list of addition parts from FIRST, should we buy that one, or a more powerful one?
Were just testing with an old BotBall servo until we figure this out
That list is specifically allowed extra motors. You will need to buy your own (or ask another team). You may NOT use any additional motor/servo that is not on that list. (Translation: Vex servos and Hitec whatever-the-number-is only.)
The Botball servos say “Hobbico Command Standard Sport Servo CS-60” on them. I found that tag on of one of the servos on last year’s Botball bot. I seem to remember that they haven’t changed the brand or model number of the servos that they have used in quite a while, so it is extremely likely that that is the same model as your servo. Since they are not Hitec servos, or Vex motors or servos, it sounds like you can’t use them. Bummer.
