Email to a Friend. Figure 3 – View of the insides of the RC servo showing the new trimpot gray and capacitor yellow. There are limits to what can be done to a RC servo without a major circuit redesign. I had a major crash of my 30 size heli because of this servo.

The Technical Details When the servo is hacked by replacing the feedback position pot. For the price,the s is not that bad. The modified servo tends to behave more like a voltage regulator than a well-tuned servo since the speed error will now be proportional to speed and load.

Reassemble the servo case and gears in the reverse order of disassembly, being careful not to pinch any wires futabx the case sections. Search WWW Search seattlerobotics.

There’s a good chance it’s a poorly made fake. Easy to spot, the fake has a white spline, the real thing is black.

The pulse stretcher output drives the servomotor through an H-bridge circuit to close the servo loop. Just Me February 27, Be sure to insulate the longer lead to prevent contact with any intermediate pads on the bottom of the circuit board.

Futaba S3003 – Servo Standard

Pulse generator or Servo driver Step-by-Step The following steps should be followed to convert the RC servo into a high quality, speed controlled, gear-motor drive: Problem is that the fake ones have very erratic behavior and slow response. Losi Strike steering Comments: Further Information For information about all of the delivery options we offer click here.


Make you connections quickly minimizing the board and component heating. If you google “Fake Futaba S Servos” you will find more information. What people need to know is that this servo has been copied by Chinese manufactures and sold on ebay for a fraction of the cost of the original. By design, servos drive to their commanded position fairly rapidly. If you are skilled at surface mount techniques, just replace the K resistor just to the left of K, “” with a KK surface mount resistor.

Components Needed for Hack 1 ea – 5K miniature multi-turn trim pot. There is some shift of the zero-speed pulse width with this change and the trim pot. The downside to it are the gears.

Earlier RC servo designs combined these functions within a single chip i. Can be used as a direct lower cost replacement for the Futaba S Servo. Use solder wick to remove unwanted solder if you accidentally create a bridge.


When subjected to this continuous rotation mod, the futqba RC servo becomes a moderately priced, full function wheel drive system for small robots, with a simple and easy microcontroller interface that can give your robot the ability to move about with great dexterity.

With your servo connected to the servo driver or pulse function generator, you should be able to operate the servo from complete stop to full speed in either direction smoothly and easilty over the This article will describe in detail how you can modify a commonly available servo Futaba S such that good variable speed control will not only be possible, but very practical.

Alot of used 30 tutaba heli on Ebay come with this servo so when you get your heli, put those away and go with better servos, in the end you will be spending more in servos but way less in repairs. Alternatively you can choose the free collection option and have your own courier collect it from us.

Futaba S Servo Specifications and Reviews

Works good for flaps, low power consumption and its pretty light. Connect the servo to a servo driver or pulse function generatorapply power, set the input pulse width to 1.


They will strip gears easily and that’s the downside to them. The round silver button to the right of the K resistor is the bottom of the motor.

If you spend between 40 and 48 – I do not blame Futaba, it’s my fault. For hobby robotics, this enables scanning sensors, walking machines, animatronic devices, and a host of other interesting moving machines. BigWrenn February 4, Works great, although a little slow. Be the first to review this product. You are now ready to put it to datasgeet in your next mini robot.

A great tool to have is a test circuit that generates the servo pulses.

In other words, perform this procedure 3s003 your own risk. Delivery times vary for international orders depending on the service selected and the destination. You can see the delivery time and cost at the shipping stage, or by using the shipping estimator from within the shipping basket. Being that it’s a basic servo it’s not too bad for general applications. Write Your Own Review You’re reviewing: Don’t forget to remove the limit-stop bump on the output gear per the other hack if you haven’t already done so.

Either replace the K surface mount resistor in the speed control feedback path with a KK resistor cleanest or add a K orange,orange,yellow shunt resistor easiest around it. Use insulation on the resistor wire and keep it down close to the board.

Midi 180 Degree Resin Gear Servo S3003

The servo now drives the motor forward or reverse when it see pulse widths less or greater than 1. If the goods are not in stock we will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible to discuss a dispatch date. Click ask a question to datassheet the first.
