I wrote a little program to open the gripper for 10 seconds, then close it for 30 seconds. When the gripper is open, if I put anything between the gripper arms, when the close, they stop when they meet any resistance, and whatever I was expecting them to hold gets dropped.
I'm thinking the servo is not powerful enough (not enough torque?) But I also read somewhere not to hook up that particular servo to anything more than 5V.
So is this a power problem, the wrong motor, or maybe even bad code?
I'd like my gripper to grip stuff. :)
