Radio Controlled Stepper

Turn Steppers to Servos. This device will operate like a expanded 0-360 servo
or full continuous rotation. A helpful ini file allows you to configure even non standard steppers.
alternate text
Tiny Servo Driver

This little slice of heavenly copper allows you to control two servos.
Some extra features in the kit allow you to expand this into many creative projects.
