    Hi,
    i bought 2 freefly servo without potentiometers and withoud resistors.
    If i connect it to the wookong or gimbal stabilizer i cannot get it found. When i connect the battery the servo start turning counterclock and never stop even if i connect it directly to receiver.
    It's normal?
    I can get it work without potentiometers or without resistors?
    If i need at least one of this, how can i make the resistor to connect to servo?

    thanks

    If it's not too much trouble, would you be kind enough to change your user name to your real first name and last name, please? The reasons for this (and how to do do it) are explained here: http://forum.freeflysystems.com/index.php?threads/real-names.497/

    Secondly, no, you cannot get the servos to work without a potentiometer or the resistors. Electrically, the resistors are two 2.6K Ohm resistors connected up as a voltage divider that looks like a potentiometer but that is fixed. If you're not sure how to do this, it might be more cost-effective to purchase the resistor assembly from Quadrocopter.

    Andy.
