I tried posting this as a question but could not get that to work so plz move this over if needed.
I have searched the site and help files and not found an answer, perhaps someone here can help if there is an existing script or plugin that does what I need.
Is there a way that I can use a continuous rotation servo with an external potentiometer to act as a standard servo? For instance, on my inmoov I had to strip the pot and limiting pin from a standard servo and install the pot on the shoulder such that the servo would make multiple revolutions through a gearbox while the arm rotated 90 degrees. That's a lot of work.
To be specific, I do not want to use a motor to do this but rather a CR servo. Not sure how the speed would be handled and imagine the pot would have to be read as an analog signal requiring 2 pins to run it but I can accept that. It would allow me to use different gearbox/belt drive/ planetary concepts for multiple revolutions using basic servo commands.
