Stuff related to MAV's (and UAV's) from a hobbyist's point of view. Info

Did you know that...

The PWM-pulse used to control an RC-servo doesn’t need to be at the same voltage-level as the servo’s supply current (5V)! Using any voltage between 3V and 6V is perfectly fine for the NE555 driver chip.

Damn if I knew this before it would have saved me quite some time (and pull-up resistors and buffers) on my autopilot module!
