OpenServoCAN
« on: February 04, 2019, 07:09:47 pm »
Hi!

So main thread of the project is here, I will not be double posting out of respect:
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/oshw/openservocan-(-for-hobby-standard-size-servos)/

I started a fundraiser to get all the materials needed to start developing the whole thing.
I can not develop it exclusively on free samples unfortunately and momentarily I am also unemployed.

Any help you provide, either with money or with publicity is invaluable. Minimum contribution is 2€, for you maybe a cup of coffee, for me a little bit more faith in this world! :-)
If you have any questions or doubts please let me know!

Link for the fundrazr is here: http://fnd.us/21SN4c?ref=sh_b7rRJd

Thanks,
Lefteris

Suppose someone sends $10 - how much of that would you actually get? IOW, how much goes in fees and kickbacks?

Platform is free, it´s around 2,9% + 30 cents for paypal per transaction. I guess the percentage is applied first so 10$ would be around 9.4$

OK, thanks. Just wanted to know where a contribution would end up - seems pointless if you don't get the vast bulk of it :)

Thanks for the thought. Good thing is that now I have a day job, so I can support at least half part of the development process (electronics for at least 10 boards).

I will need more to buy servos and testing platforms but at least then people will see, I´m not asking for money for just an idea.  ;)

Made a small contribution. Do keep us informed of progress (if any!) - I am interested in how this pans out.

Thanks a lot mate, I´ll have more news at the end of the month, I need my paycheck first. But with this money I´ll order some ebay servos.
See what is able to fit and what not. I just got an MG995 yesterday, unfortunately it´s a no go... too wide.

There has to be a v2 of the board, I´ll keep the current to build software and test, I´ll move to v2 much later.


Thanks again!
