Re: robotic arm

I know from previous experience that it is easier to turn / move the bulk of the arm with motors from cordless drills. They are much cheaper than a servo with similar specs and the control circuitry required is really easy to build. A further advantage is that you allready have a power supply and chargers that way around.

Cheers
