    Hi guys,
    I was just curious...

    I want to build a 8-servo motor controller to be interfaced to a computer (to be controlled by a computer in real time)

    I just wanted to know of the difficulties and the issues that have to be taken into consideration when building such a motor (speed, voltage regultion to the motors ? stuff like that .. )

    Thanks

    Grasshopper,

    You will get to eight, only after passing through one. If bypass one you do, a lifetime will your journey last.

    Hi,

    Get spec's from the mfr of the servo motor. That will tell you how to care for and feed it. Then you can construct an interface board and write a driver for it. Then you write the code that lets you do useful functions with all eight motors.
