Towerpro Servo Motor - MG959 (Metal Gear & CNC Alloy Case)
So shiny! The MG959 is the full house when it comes to servo motors from TowerPro. The unit features a fully CNC'd aluminium case (milled from a single block of 6061 T651 aluminium), and up to 32kg of stalling torque via the coreless motor with full set of metal gears. The unit weighs in at 78g, so suitable for larger projects and giant RC airplanes. It also comes with a metal horn, and plastic case!
The unit comes complete with 32cm wire and 3 pin 'S' type female header connector that fits most receivers, including Futaba, JR, GWS, Cirrus, Blue Bird, Blue Arrow, Corona, Berg, Spektrum and Hitec.
They work great with our UltraBorg servo and ultrasonic control board, and other Raspberry Pi Motor Controllers. They're also great for the Arduino Motor Shield - or simply by wiring up Arduino with the Servo library.
Towerpro Servo's comes with a selection of arms and hardware to get you set up nice and fast!

To control with an Arduino, we suggest connecting the orange control wire to pin 9 or 10 and using the Servo library included with the Arduino IDE (Example Sketch). Position "0" (1.5ms pulse) is middle, "90" (~2ms pulse) is all the way to the right, "-90" (~1ms pulse) is all the way to the left.
