I am going to get lots of servo from RiShop
But i need a good controller with proper software interface, as i need to make a arm of quadpod from it.
i have found following so far

Robokits servo controller (good software)
Pololu Micro miestro controller ( great software, can even control speed and acceleration of individual moters at single frame)

where can i get pololu controller in india

is there any one selling lynxmotion controller ?
the ssc 32 board is open source, why not any one building it ?

I love those robot arms on letsmakerobots.com
The new wooden one and with micro servo

I am planning to use arduino for potentiometer method shown in new wooden arm at LMR

If you are good in programming, you can use the same micro(The main micro in your board, if it has 8 spare lines) for servo control, ie you dont need an additional servo controller.

However, if the main servo is intensive in calculations, its better you get a dedicated one.You have many options in online stores, place one according to your budget and space constrain of your robot.
