performing a servo speed test

Recommended Posts

hi all
was wondering how tests like the one in the vid below is done?
is each servo connected to a diffrerent channel?  if its a different channel I will need to operate 2+ channels to start the speed test for the 2+ servos right?
is it possible to have all operated by the same "button" in the transmitter?

thanks

I don't really see a vid below but maybe that's just me.

If it's to test the servo speed and not the radio signal I would work with a Y cable so both servo's get their signal from the same channel.

my god forgot to paste the vid :wub:
here it is: not sure what a y cable is.  like a splitter such that all servos sit on the same channel? can you provide a link. thanks!

Note that no receiver or transmitter was used in those tests. A servo tester was used and can be seen at the top of some of the video shots.

I have a ToolkitRC MC8 that can also do the same thing.

There you go.

Or in this example, an UBEC is used as the power supply.

I will just hook up a 2S directly like my MC8 video above.

thanks for the help

I ended up buying a simple tester that comes with AA battery connector. easier for me.
