 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Thanks everyone, I think I got what I needed the last code seemes to be a very elegant solution. I still cannot try the code for external reasons but it will most likely work as intended with that last code John Wasser has posted.

Case is very likely to be closed...

Another choice is to remove the electronics from the "continuous rotation servo" and connect a small H-bridge directly to the motor.  This will reduce the "servo" to acting as a DC gearmotor.  You will have better control of the speed and be assured that it will come to a full stop.  You could also add an optical sensor for a "home" position and use that to stop the rotation at a known position.
