Please read my review of this product. The chip inside the VSD-11YMB servo can take 9V (3.3V to 9V). The chip is the MAC900 and it has 2 x AO4606 mosfet (take 30V). I tested with 2S lipo and it works. The servo is also water proof.
There is 2 main o-rings on the casing and 4 mini o-rings around the screws.
In my case, I took the electronics of the VSD-11YMB with the potentiometer and put it inside a Hitec HS-311 (cut the main gear) and got myself a small winch servo!!! I was VERY happy!
I have one of these and on 6V I only get 3.75 turns using a Turnigy 9X radio and only 3 turns using my HiTec. Both radios have the endpoints set to 100%. I am unable to test it on 7.2V but I wouldn't expect much difference.They are supposed to be 6 turns. Am I missing something here
I've had the same thing with some budget sail winch servos I bought in the UK - which seem to be the same one HK allegedly sells (maybe one day they'll be in stock). I think the answer is they expect transmitters to send a wider pulse range than Futaba or Hitec use. I can get more range by using a cheap chinese servo tester. Have you tried setting the end points to 125% (or whatever the limits are)? I'll have to try that too.
Well worth reading. Thanks. So, the HobbyKing specs are total nonsense. I find it a bit disturbing to see a servo manufacturer quoting stall torque in "oz/in" though. You don't divide force by distance to get torque, you multiply it. Force times distance. Kg.cm or oz.in, people. Not Kg/cm or oz/in. Makes you wonder what it is they do for a living...
It depends on the length of the pulses sent to it by the receiver or the servo tester. For pulses of 1ms to 2ms, you'll probably get four turns. It looks like they expect the full range to be 0.9ms to 2.1ms or maybe a bit wider. It's possible theres' no limit in the software, other than maybe rejecting short pulses. If you have a microcontroller (e.g. an Arduino), you could try sending stupidly long or short pulses to see what happens. Modifying them to do continuous rotation shouldn't be hard - uncouple the position sensing pot (assuming that's how they work). I've done it with standard servos, but had to cut off the end stops too. Modifying a sail winch should be easier.
Where can i find different servo horns that will fit this? the winch horn isn't appropriate for my FPV pan/tilt antenna tracker needs- another servo like this was reported that the splines aren't futaba and therefore very hard to find different servo horns that will fit..? thanks in advance
Probably not directly. I tested mine on ~6V, with constant cycle on servo tester - it was hot after few minutes.
Ofc servo on tracker won't work non-stop, but as pan-tilt system with stabilisation... Anyway, even smaller servo could move DSLR easily, with that one (and 360°* rotation) You could pan-tilt beer barrel easily =)
what does 'ofc' mean and are you saying it would or wouldn't be good as a pan servo on a heavy duty antenna tracker? does it only come with the winch servo 'horn' or other types as well- I would need this with a regular round servo horn- if not- do you know where I could get one? thank you again
ofc == "of course".
Servo comes with round "horn" (like gear pulley) and no other horns.
Servo horn mount looks like it should fit other big servo horns, but i do not have another large servo to test it.
Few big bluebird servos should arrive soon, i could test if horns could be fitted...
Tested with BlueBird 661DMG HS. While they're big servos, their arm connector is much smaller compared to this servo.
No idea who could fit. Probably You could make custom servo (carbon plate drill dremel)...
OK- thank you for trying and your replies- I have tried contacting Vigor to see what they have to say-so far they siad that the VSD-11YMB & VSD-22YMB really have a similar cycle horn as hitec hs-645mg which would be great if it did- but clearly it is a large winch horn which is no good for my antenna tracker.. will report back if they give any better info
i think mounting a servo horn to this servo is no option. it will rotate 6 times and is very very very powerfull. (and very heavy too). you can offcourse program the radio so it will get a maximum of just 360 degrees and mount the cam right on. but i think for fpv flight 180 degrees is more then enough. and to do so you only need to buy a servo angle expander for a few dollars and check a simple light servo if the expander don't force it into its mechanical end.
has anybody tried to wire up a battery pack to the winch.. I want to run 7.2 volt. to pick up the speed.. but i cant seem to get it to run.. when the winch runs off the reciever pack.. no problem. but wire up a different battery . no motion at all. i like the winch. just need some help with the other battery pack
In the VSD-11YMB you will find 2 main components. 2 x mosfet AO4606 and the servo controller MAC900. The mosfet can take 30V. I was able to get the datasheet of the MAC900. In the datasheet it is writting "Supply voltage range: 3.3 to 9 V (1~2 Lithium Batteries)" So YES this servo will work on 2S lipo! I have then tested the servo on 2S lipo and it works! The servo is water proof, there is 2 main o-rings on the casing and 4 mini o-rings around the screws. In my case, I took the electronics of the VSD-11YMB with the potentiometer and put it inside a Hitec HS-311 (cut the main gear) and got myself a small winch servo!!! I was VERY happy!
