Mini-z steering servo 4 leads?

Hey folks,

I'm going to use a mini-z PCB and motor for a little custom project of mine. However, i'll be using a regular steering servo. How does the mini-z 4-leads relate to the normal 3-leads on my futaba and hitec servos?

Many thanks,

rjan

I guess I haven't signed in a while.... good thing nobody tried to get hold of me

Follow the pictorial here for converting standard servos to Mini-Z, it should explain everything. The only difference is that ASF Mini-Z's have 3 wires going to the potentiometer (black cylinder), while your Mini-Z only has 2 wires going to the pot -- the other 2 go directly to the steering servo motor.

Hope this helps.

That was pretty neat, and google translate did actually help too

Question is though - how to handle having "only" two leads to the potentiometer? The pcb will come from an upgraded MR-015. Using a new ASF board is a bit too expensive I think.

Thanks again.
