NO, Qamit. The centre is when servo is energized, but stopped. You must verify the centre using a tester, or pluging to a receiver and ESC/BEC. Small adjusts can be done changing the arm position. If the answer is good, select like "best answer"
No, the servo has it´*s own center. Plug the servo and press center. If the servo arm is not where you want, unscrew the servo arm and manualy put it where you wish the center is. Screw back in place. Now the center will allways be that spot.
You got my brains hurting. What does a tiny servo tester have to do with a hot-wire cutter? If your question is about how to power the servo tester, then the answer is, it replaces the RX in the system. You need power the tester using BEC or the BEC plug of an ESC.
Ok, I just saw the video. I only had a brushless ESC to test it with (you need brushed) and the ESC did not recognize the tester as a valid throttle signal provider. The thing is, I don't think the server can return a throttle signal up the BEC plug. Maybe if you rewire a plug to grab one of the signal outputs from the tester...
That's basically what I meant by 'rewire'. Using a modified Y servo lead, I would connect the ground power to the tester's power input, and ground signal to the tester's output. Considering the cost of this little tester, you don't have much to lose. On the other hand, if you burn your ESC's BEC then its a little more costly.
Can this be used with a gyro? I a using a gyro (E-flite G210HL) with a servo (Futaba S9257). This is a tail stabilizer combination for a small RC helicopter which I intend to use for a different purpose. It seems that the gyro requires a signal from a receiver. I have a 4.8 volt battery connected to the gyro, the gyro is connected to the servo, there is only one yellow lead remaining coming out of the gyro. At this point the gyro will not work and there is a blinking red light which I believe indicates a malfunction.
yes you can use it to control an esc no problem...it works just like a receiver but in this the signal comes from the pontetiometer not the Tx...if you use a esc that has built in BEC don't connect another battery to the battery connector...just the battery for the ESC/Motor...
Just attach the proper voltage battery to the side with single plug and up to three servos on the other and select the mode by pressing the "Select" and away you go. First light on left is manual (servo moves when you turn the knob) Middle light centers the servo (s) in the neutral position* light on the right cycles servo(s) from one end of travel to the other.
hello, sincerely was one of the best acquisitions that fis because it focuses the servant does not need to stay in the league and deslidga rx preocupoar nor reset the trims on the tx. it possesses him three positions.
1 - free - movement done manually
2 - center - centers the servo arm to facilitate installation
3 Automatic - performs movements with the servant, that you check the operation of the airport
if you ask me i wouldent get this servo here it sells cheeper on the net and also its not so relyable i dont know how much you will use it but for massive usage it can brake douwn after some time and on the othere hand i would wait for the blue aluminium turnigy servo tester to be in stock its a G.T. company tester its built very nice and thanks to hobby king its sells here at half of its regular price
Just supply power first(use an esc or bec w rx plug) select mode, then attach servos to be checked. dial does nothing in nuetral/center mode, controls servo sweep in manual mode and controls speed of sweep in auto mode. Hope this helps
Olá, sinceramente foi uma das melhores aquisições que fis porque se concentra o servo não precisa ficar na liga e rx deslidga preocupoar nem repor as guarnições na tx. ele possui três posições. 1 - livre - movimento feito manualmente 2 - Centro - Centros de o braço do servo para facilitar a instalação automática 3 - executa movimentos com o servo, que você verifique o funcionamento do aeroporto
Ha guys I read this from Allison """""Just make sure you do not press the swich more than once or it will go into AUTO mode""""" What she said before that was good. I never though to us mine on an ESC Does it work???? Also on my tester if you press it once the servos center. How can this be GOOD??
Hi Kellyann I am Kellyann as well. Yes you are right. I am a bit cross at Allison. I set it up as she said. But when I press the button all hell broke lose. My motor spun up to half speed. Thank God I did not have a prop on it. So what she said was good just do not press the button at all. Once you set it up as Allison said hook up you ESC and motor (with out prop) and you are good to go. Use the nob to adjust the speed. It works well. I hope this helps.
Kellyann hook it up to a servo first instead of you ESC make sure your it is hard to the stop in the off direction. Then hook up your ESC. Just make sure you do not press the swich more than once or it will go into AUTO mode. I hope this helps.
HamdHan yes they are but I have 2 of them and i love them. It is much easier to center your servo with (Before you bend servo wire)than pull out your whole rc set. I make a lot of park flyer for the kids around the block so I try to keep the cost down. I know it will not help but thanks
Not good,But use this micro ubec for the good of your servo tester.
This small and lightweight UBEC features a high efficiency switching mode BEC, providing better heat dissipation when compared to linear voltage regulation. The shielded PCB design and output EMF coil provide a stable, low noise voltage output. The HKU3 also features built-in reverse polarity protection.
I have used it on digital servos, analogue servos AND even my motors. for a motor, just connect the esc to the tester, dont worry about the other rx battery, just connect your normal lipo to the esc and theres your power. only use it manually for a motor though :D
I have an rc car and a gyro from heli which i dont use now, i want to put gyro in the car but the gyro has gain control from reciever channel and while my car tx is 3ch the third channel can only be switched either 0 or 100% throw, so can i put this tester in the car, connect the gyro gain wire to it and set the gyro gain and ride like that? Of course i will supply power to it from the reciever. Also the gyro gain adjust wire only has 1 of the 3 wires, will it still work the way i've described?
Has anyone tested this with a Corona DS-929MG? That is a digital servo with metal gears. When I plug up one of these to this servo tester, the behavior is very erratic...jumps all over the place and lights go crazy. It works fine on my analog HXT-900 and 500 servos.
Is this tester only for analog servos?
hello. of course yes friend.
plug a battery to feed the tester, plug the servo cable from the esc to one port of the tester, plug the battery(before plug in the batt be sure the tester potentiometer is at its minimal anticlockwise position), now you are done, just wait for the esc music tones and start your motor manually.
Charles, there is a functionality on this web which gives you opportunity to get credited for the answer. However, you do not see who answered before you, so many answers are multiplicated. Especially those to stupid questions :-)...
To answer your questions, Alot people (such as myself) answer questions that are just in a list and you do not know who or if anyone has already answered this. So I may give an answer to a question that has been answered a dozen times already, but I do not have that info. Maybe HK should set the questions not to display after 5 or 6 answers, or better yet, once an answer has been credited to have it to be removed from the question ***l.
"Manual" means you can set the servo position manually using the knob.
"Neutral" sets the servo to the center, (equivalent to trim and sticks centered)
"Auto" cycles the servo back and forth through the whole range of motion.
Pressing "Select" changes the mode.
Hi, Manual : you turn the servo using the potentiometer Neutral : the tester will set the servos to their neutral position Auto : the tester will move the servo back and forward constantly on its full range of movement.
hi, it means you can select 3 modes to test your servo. you push the button one time and you scroll into the menu as "manual-neutral-auto" : in manual, servos answer when you turn the rotating , neutral is placing the servo at neutral position, automatic is constant movement between extremes position :-)
Manual you have to turn the servo with the use of the potentiometer Neutral is when the tester set the servos to neutral position Auto is when the tester turn the servo automaticly on its full range of movement from beggining to the end.
This means that servo tester has three modes available:
Manual - you are moving with servo by the knob
Neutral - Output of servotester is constantly "in the center" so servo is in center position (good to finding center position for ex. on heli)
Auto - Servo moves from one endpoin to second automaticaly (good for servo testing)
Manual means you can use the nob to turn the servo in any direction and position you want. Neutral means center, it puts the servo into center position same as your radio. Auto means it rotates from one end of the stick to another (swing) so you can test the maximum end point when installing the servos.
Manual means you can rotate the servo by turning the knob on the tester Neutral will set the servo in it's centered position and Auto means the tester will rotate the servo back and forth, good for breaking in servo gears prior to fitting them, hope thi helps.
on manual the servo arms only move when you move the knob, on neutral connected servos go to their center point, on auto they go left extreme-right extreme until you switch back to neutral or remove power.
when you select neutral the servo is at the point-zero or else "neutral" with manual mode on you move the servo using the knob on the device...and on auto mode the servo keeps moving all the way to the left and then all the way to the right...hope i helped :)
Manual meaning we manually adjust the knob and the servo will follow. Neutral mean the servo will be in its neutral position i.e. in the middle. Auto mean the servo will automatically turning left and right. Hope those help.
Just a first impression, trying to help HK improve first impression of some.. It is just so simple to make things, like graphics, look nice. I a marketing/graphics artist/sales guy. My pet peeve I guess..
Looks like the same functions as the turnigy tester at a lower price.
Man (manual mode) is for manual servo control.
Neutral is for finding the centerpoint.
Auto cycles the servo from endpoint to endpoint nonstop.
You'll need 4 nihm cells, a 1s lipo, or a voltage regulator for anything above 6 volts (2s )
Handy gadget saves time during servo installs.
That is NOT light refracting, look at the straight lines of the silkscreen *-)
On closer look the LED holes are not the only misaligned area. The guage on the pot and the IN and OUT pins text is also incorrect. I reckon it is just the housing that was folded/glued incorrectly.
Le bouton à gauche permet 3 positions: _ Variation de position avec le potentiometre _ Position centre _ Variation automatique continue d'une extreme à l'autre
A ce prix là ne pas hésiter à avoir dans sa caisse de terrain et à l'atelier au moins pour faire le zero avant montage des gouvernes sans pour autant utiliser systematiquement la radio. S'alimente avec un accu standard 4.8V
