Got two E-sky servos, the one found in the Lama v3. But can't seem to find how to mod them for continuous run.

Anyone know how?

Or, got a recommendation for easy-modifiable servos?

Why not just buy a couple from Parallax? Already modified. here are some instructions but each servo is different inside so be careful.

open the servo, cut of the plastic stopper bit on the final gear - the one the servo horn fits onto. Either make the pot stay in its center, or change it for 2 resistors of equal resistance to half the pot, so that it reads center always, then put it back. The servo commands will still work, but it will never reach  the point so it will just become a varable speed motor!
