    How do you tell if the servo motor is continuous?

    It will say on it, for example:



    • #3
      If that doesn't work, you can firmly, but slowly turn the servo wheel.
      If it's a regular 180 servo, it will turn about half way, and then hit a hard stop.
      If it's a CR servo, it will do more than a full rotation without hitting stops.

      There are of course exceptions, the 3.7 turn 1/4 scale sail servo is a hybrid.
      And the REV Robotics Smart servo, does not have stops, but can be either type of servo.
