Hello guyz, I am trying to make a robotic arm I am stuck. I want my USB gamepad buttons to control the servo motors independently. Whenever I press button 1 the servo moves from 0 to 180 and when i press button 4 it moves that servo from 180 to 0. But i want to rotate the servo clockwise and anticlockwise independently without any restriction. Could you guyz please help me out. Here is the link of my python script
https://github.com/aeropunk/Arduino-Python-4-Axis-Servo/blob/master/multijoystick.py

Here is my arduino code
Code: [Select]
// Import the Arduino Servo library
#include <Servo.h>

// Create a Servo object for each servo
Servo servo1;
Servo servo2;
Servo servo3;
Servo servo4;
Servo servo5;
// TO ADD SERVOS:
//   Servo servo5;
//   etc...

// Common servo setup values
int minPulse = 600;   // minimum servo position, us (microseconds)
int maxPulse = 2400;  // maximum servo position, us

// User input for servo and position
int userInput[3];    // raw input from serial buffer, 3 bytes
int startbyte;       // start byte, begin reading input
int servo;           // which servo to pulse?
int pos;             // servo angle 0-180
int i;               // iterator


// LED on Pin 13 for digital on/off demo
int ledPin = 13;
int pinState = LOW;

void setup()
{
  // Attach each Servo object to a digital pin
  servo1.attach(2, minPulse, maxPulse);
  servo2.attach(3, minPulse, maxPulse);
  servo3.attach(4, minPulse, maxPulse);
  servo4.attach(5, minPulse, maxPulse);
  servo5.attach(9, minPulse, maxPulse);

  // TO ADD SERVOS:
  //   servo5.attach(YOUR_PIN, minPulse, maxPulse);
  //   etc...

  // LED on Pin 13 for digital on/off demo
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);
  // Open the serial connection, 9600 baud
  Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop()
{
  // Wait for serial input (min 3 bytes in buffer)
  if (Serial.available() > 2) {
    // Read the first byte
    startbyte = Serial.read();
    // If it's really the startbyte (255) ...
    if (startbyte == 255) {
      // ... then get the next two bytes
      for (i=0;i<2;i++) {
        userInput[i] = Serial.read();
      }
      // First byte = servo to move?
      servo = userInput[0];
      // Second byte = which position?
      pos = userInput[1];
      // Packet error checking and recovery
      if (pos == 255) { servo = 255; }

      // Assign new position to appropriate servo
      switch (servo)
      {
        case 1:
          servo1.write(pos);    // move servo1 to 'pos'
          break;
        case 2:
          servo2.write(pos);
          break;
        case 3:
          servo3.write(pos);
          break;
        case 4:
          servo4.write(pos);
          break;
        case 5:
          if(pos == 180)
          { }
          if(pos == 0)
          { }
          break;

   // TO ADD SERVOS:
   //     case 5:
   //       servo5.write(pos);
   //       break;
   // etc...

        // LED on Pin 13 for digital on/off demo
        case 99:
          if (pos == 180) {
            if (pinState == LOW) { pinState = HIGH; }
            else { pinState = LOW; }
          }
          if (pos == 0) {
            pinState = LOW;
          }
          digitalWrite(ledPin, pinState);
          break;
      }
    }
  }
}


What changes should i make in case 5 so that whenever the button 1 is pressed the servo will rotate clockwise again whenever the button 4 is pressed the servo will rotate anti clockwise. Thank you
