For the first time the pi hut has not delivered as it says on the tin! I bought the Servo Kit for Raspberry Pi because it says "Get started with servos and the Raspberry Pi ! The Monk Makes Servo Kit is an easy way to make cool projects with servos and the Raspberry Pi." Unfortunately that has not been my experience so far. On the positive side, the pdf provides a great description for connecting the hardware. That took about 2minutes. However, the software side was a disaster. The servo six software is no longer supported on github. I downloaded it anyway because I thought that although not updated, since it was still available, it would drive the servos. No! The example py had an error that said that the servo six module didn't exist. So I went over to the site recommended by Simon Monk on within and ran the first programme for determining the limits of the servo. The programme appeared to run but the servo did nothing! I tried another programme on that site with the same result. I can't imagine I have two dead servos and I presume that the servo software is correct. So, I must be doing something wrong, but as a begunber, I haven't a clue what to do next. In the meantime, I at least have a battery pack ( if I find a need for one) and a leaf for the gpios. Shame because I had a great project lined up for them. So, if your not starting out with servos and you know what you're doing, they're probably great, but, if like me, you're just starting, this is NOT the kit you're looking for!😕😤
