Servo winch and how easy it is to make one .

Things you will need :

– a servo (used a cheap towerpro clone i had spare)

-wire

-spool (a friend made this one for me out of two servo horns)

Open up the servo , the top gear is the you care about

Use a pair of pliers to remove the pin which prevents the 360 rotation , on the inside there is a plastic slot which controls the pot, ream or remove that slot so it wont touch the pot.

plug in the servo and turn the pot so the servo stops spinning . once you find the position , put some CA glue on it so the pot wont move anymore.

reassemble the servo and enjoy more power

the issues i ran into are that i have no proper CA glue so im not sure if the pot is glued correctly which might be the reason im getting the drift of the winch. if i can’t fix that i will get a HeyOk no drift winch controller.

Here is a nice video (not by me) that explains the whole process in a bit more lengthy way
