This control is laid Horizontally for a horizontal mounted servo.

The release button on the control will stop holding the servo in position.

The Center button is the center between Min and Max.
For example, Min is the minimum position. Max is the maximum position. If you press the Center button, the servo will center between Min and Max position. Think of Min and Max as being a boundary that you define. Your robot most likely will have a few appendages that require limiting. The Vertical Head Servo is an example of an appendage that will require limiting. You specify the Min and Max limits of that servo. Once you have done that, the CENTER button will position the servo between the boundaries that you specify.

*Note: like all robot skill controls, this does not save the last servo position used. To set a servo position when the robot connects, create an initialization script using the Connection Control.
