Hello, i have read about your hexapod project and i found it quite interesting and want to build one to help myself learn. But while procuring materials i have failed to understand what type of servo motor you used. I have read it was TowerPro MG92B, but is it a continuous servo motor or standard servo motor?
Would be really grateful if you could reply
