  • Servo Twitches Without Program

    Hi everyone,

    We have a standard servo configured & plugged into our servo controller, and without any program running, we see that it twitches. When a program runs to initialize that servo, it stops twitching and works fine. All ports except for 5 & 6 cause the servo to twitch. Has anyone else had this problem & can help us out? Thank you so much!!

    This was a problem with the Rev 2.4 FTC_SDK that was corrected in the beta release 2.61

    This was most noticable if the servo was configured as a CR servo, but it may also be seen with regular servos as a twitch that moves the servo towards one end.

    I'm not sure why it doesn't happen for servo channels 5 & 6. Are these servos configured? Are they being used?
    Can you just assign your servo to one of these channels?

      Thank you so much, we'll try the beta release and see if that works!

      Ports 5 & 6 are configured and being used for CR servos. The standard servo works in those ports but the CR servos also twitch in ports 1-4.
