Community Question

@DJ There have been lots of discussion (especially lately) about Dynamixel smart servos and now you have released a new plugin for support of KRS ICS smart servos too... I was just wondering if EZ Robot has considered or is considering your own brand of smart servo? I mean nothing would be more compatible with the ez robot platform than your own "in house" products, right?

Anyway I currently use a lot of the standard ez robot servos in my projects and find them pretty decent. However, I would have jumped a long time ago to smart servos if the cost wasn't so prohibitive... Saying that I would be more than willing to pay for "smart" ez robot servos especially since I know integration and compatibility would be complete... I know supporting 3d party products can sometimes be a pain for ez robot so I thought "hey if you can't beat 'em, join 'em"...:)

I do understand that maybe only us DIY guys would be more interested in smart ez robot servos, but could you imagine JD with them?:D

Hi DJ,

Are these HDD servos available now?
If I purchase some servos would I get the new HDD servos?

Not yet likely. You will have to await for the announcement.

I was wondering if these servo's are the same footprint as HS servo's Do they come without the attachment?. I need 12 for my Max Robot. Each arm has 6 servo's.

Are they available to order now?

These are awesome servo's. They would make my Max much quieter and stronger.

@Ellis... For obvious reasons they will be identical physically... If they weren't they wouldn't fit into the ez bit brackets that all the revolution Robots currently use... As mentioned they are not in the store yet... All you have to do is check the online store from time to time to see when they appear.... They will be designated as HDD instead of HD (which are the ones currently available in the store). @DJ has stated you will be able to tell which one you are buying...
