Harder, better, faster, stronger! All the control and customization for your robot project. The Parallax Feedback 360° High Speed Servo has the functionality of a light-duty servo, continuous rotation servo, high-speed servo, and encoder in one convenient package – what a triple threat!
Like most continuous rotation servos, this is controlled by a standard 50 Hz pulse-width-modulation signal. But it adds a little extra – a feedback wire. This wire connects to an internal Hall effect sensor that will give you the absolute location/rotation of the horn. This feedback makes it easy to create projects where you want to turn and hold any angle with an unlimited range of motion! Or, rotate the servo continuously at a controlled speed—up to 120 RPM—as a robot drive motor.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
