My shoulder servo doesn’t work anymore, and I’m told they don’t make this servo anymore. What do I do now?
You could cry, but I suggest you upgrade the arm following the steps below to complete this task. It’ll cost about $100 per arm, but it’s worth it.
If you purchased your Lynxmotion robotic arm before 2011, chances are you got a batch of glitchy shoulder servos. HiTech€™s, the servo company, solution to fixing them was to discontinue them. This left Lynxmotion with only one choice: change the servos. To do this, the brackets had to change as well. Also, this upgrade makes the arm much stronger and smoother, and I believe they will last a lot longer as well.
So, if you want a stronger, smoother robotic arm, and you have some money in your budget, follow the steps bellow to an upgrade! The products below come in packs of two, so for about $110.00 each, they€™ll be good for many more years.
