Hi all,

I’m newbie to servo motors. I need to learn basic functionality of this motor before putting my hands in some fancy project. Which motor will u recommend for this purpose, it should be cheap though! I mean to say what are the specifications I have to tell to the shopkeeper to get it? And finally it should be available at Metha Brother or Everest Sales, because I don’t know any other shop.

Thanks

Well as such servos are not availible in india ....
You will have to import them ...

But u can get them for about 10 $ ~ 450 + .. Anyway i recommend HiTech servos ( They are good and affordable )

Hi Vikas,

That is surprising fact, but why it is not available in India? It is mentioned on this page http://www.roboticsindia.com/modules.php?name=Wiki&page=Delhi that all types of motors are available here, so I thought servo motors might also be available there ;-).

You can get servos from here but very expensive, abt Rs.1200 for a 10$ one.

The best thing is to import if you need low volume, perhaps you 'll be exempted from customs duties.

Hi Jack,

Servo motors are used for controlled rotation, so if u have a need to use them then u can go for steppers or DC motors with shaft encoders. Given the constraints in India, theese alterntives may turn out to be very good indeed.

Hey
I can suggest you Futaba. The futaba s148 is the most economical one you can get for the torques. I ordered it from abroad, but i know of a guy who got an entire RC kit from bangalore...
for the torque, size and specs follow this link
