Thanks Nathan - no rush. I will wait for the code to come out. So to use the Orion board we have to use their servos ? Or can we use any servos ?

The current firmware is geared toward our servos but should work with anyones servos as long as you dont use the feedback system. Even using the feedback system may not affect other brand servos because they are very short pulses and most digital servos should ignore them, however analog servos may glitch because of it.

As Nathan mentioned, the default system is geared around their servos, however a little while ago I did purchase one of these and modified one of my Lynxmotion Hex robots to run using it. This robot is using Hitec 645mg servos. As he mentioned, with the feedback turned on, there were some glitches, which was resolved by me simply turning the feedback off. You can see a little more about that robot up on the Lynxmotion forum: http://www.lynxmotion.net/viewtopic.php ... ion#p84045

Note: the code I put up on my github account has not been touched in awhile. I will probably need to massage it a little once the official libraries are released.
