Hi everyone,

I'm asking myself if we can use a continuous servomotor like a 180 degrees servomotor?

Can you help me? Thx

No. They're very different. A continuous servo has no positioning ability. All it does is rotate, you can't stop it at any particular position.

You use the same Servo library to drive to both types but in the normal servo the value in the write() e.g. write(90) sets the position the servo moves to. In a continuous servo the different values affect the speed of rotation.
