Not sure what you're looking for -- to control a servo you have to pulse the control wire every 20 ms to tell it how far to rotate. In his example there's extra stuff in there because he's sensing tilt with an accelerometer (or gyro, not sure which) but the actual turning of the servo is just a couple of lines.

The Netduino doesn't do it all for you - it just gives you the ability to do it all. :)

Yup i realize it doesn't do it for me haha. Just trying to figure out this Coding.
When i programmed Stamps i had a manual that had all the info onthe commands etc.

What I'm trying to say is instead of me guessing the commands and the unit not understanding what i am
trying to tell it. I need a list of commands that make sense to me and the Duino.

I'm guessing there must have been something some where i just can not find it :).

Cheers Stew

Check out the excellent tutorial posted on Servos and accelerometers here:


Almost a bit complicated for me :)
Ill sort through it and see what i can pull out of it.

I just Received my netduino, I like it already with its small size, and "Small Box". I played around a few years ago when i was at school with the Basic Stamp, made robots etc etc. As i am wanting to get back into this i was wondering if there was any source code that i could study to get things moving. I have done the basic programs but i can't see any servo commands or how to check for resistances etc. Hoping someone can shed some light Excellent product for the Money !!! Cheers Stew
