Standard Metal Servo (MG996R)
MG996R is an upgraded version of MG995 servo. The new PCB and IC control system which makes it far more accurate. Its internal gearing and motor are also upgraded to improve dead bandwidth and centering. It is a great choice for 1/10 buggy and airplane helicopter, RC-cars from 10 to 6-th scale truggy and monster and many RC model.
This high-torque standard servo now comes in a metal-gear flavor, for extra-high torque (9.4 kg-cm!) and reliability! It can rotate at least 180 degrees (90 in each direction) with a classic 1.5-2.5ms pulse. You can use any servo code, hardware or library to control these servos.
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. 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.
The default servo pulse widths (usually 1ms to 2ms) may not give you a full 360 degrees of motion. In that case, check if you can set your servo controller to custom pulse lengths and try 0.75ms to 2.25ms. You can try shorter/longer pulses but be aware that if you go too far you could break your servo!
NOTE: Operating servos close to or at stall torque reduces their life and will permanently damage them beyond repair.
