Has anybody here tried these out? I'm experimenting with different configs and different gear motors that i can use as servos...is this a good option?

No. but it looks like they just added a circuit board to a gear motor.. i wonder if it would work for mobility without having to use a saberthoot?

It looks like a servo, I just don't know where the pot is...is this just a geared motor with a motor driver? That's why I'm asking if anyone here have used it...curious

hmmmm that is really interesting! Ive never seen one like that before... I wasn't sure if the pot was just under the middle of the board as if its attached to the outer drive shaft?

This would be good for my astromech as well so I am curious too.. is it possible to ask the guy selling them? If its just a motor and gear box attached to a pot this would be pretty easy/cheap to make

I use a dc window motor with a homemade hbridge and a pot to drive both my robot's shoulders. They cost under $50 to make. Works well, I'm just looking at my options
