    Hi!
    I'm wondering if it's possible to get an standard servo cable output from the controller thru the mövi? I would like to use a homemade servo motor instead of red rock etc. So is it possible to use some kind och connector so that i can use the focus wheel on the controller to control a standard servo on my M15? Would be an awesome budget hack. For example with the quadroshutter?

    I don't think there is any PWM** output on the MōVI Controller, Kasper.
    I'll double check, but...

    I wanted to bump this, is there a way to run a servo this way? i want to turn a led light on/off with e.g. the rec start button.

    Reiel: That's a question for Freefly themselves, https://freeflysystems.com/contact -- I'm not sure whether they would disclose the interface they use, but it's worth asking.
