  • You can add a feedback wire to any servo easy as. Inside there is a potentiometer, turned as the servo moves. Just connect the middle pin on the pot to your analogue in. Generally the pin will vary between 0 & 5v over the servos range of movement.

    I suspect the ‘feedback’ servos are just off the shelf servos with the wire added. Making your own means you can use servos of an appropriate size / torque.

  • That’s a fantastic company ethos - much like my own!
    I’ve had to draw a line under skateboards for me at least - I always seem to land painfully in the prickly bushes!
    You’ve forgotten the two most important things for being happy at work:
    Air Conditioning and a Diet Coke Vending Machine!
    Fantastic products from a fantastic company.

No public wish lists :(
