Title: Is it possible to get servo angle ?
Post by: creativen on Jan 17, 2013, 11:01 pm
I will use this servo http://geraicerdas.com/mini-servo-turnigy-9g
I could type some code and cause the servo to rotate 0-60 degrees.
It is succesful!

How if I rotate the servo manually (with my hand)
is there a way so I can display in the serial monitor how many degrees I already rotate?

Thank you for reading my post.
Sorry for my bad english, if there is unclear, just let me know  :smiley-mr-green:

Without modifying the servo, no.

What you need is an encoder.
