Karen Nakamura: February 2009 Archives

My project has expanded to use standard size servos (link back to my micro servo comparison). Here's a little table that I'm using to compare various options.

The conversion for torque from kg/cm to oz/in is to multiply by 14.7. So a servo with a torque of 1.0 kg/cm has an imperial torque of 14.7 oz/in.
