Servo Jitters


#1

I recently acquired a GoPiGo2 and followed the online instructions to build it up. Upon completion I noticed everything seemed to work, and I was able to update the firmware to v1.6. After updating the firmware I ran the basic_test_all.py and found the servos are extremely jittery. I have removed them and reinstalled thinking that maybe I did it wrong the first time, but am still experiencing major jitter.

Hey cjirvene, we have a known issue here. Depending on how you use the servo, there can be jitters. We have been meaning to update the firmware for a while.

There is a workaround to the issue here:
