Thanks Randy, that's a start. I do have a Spectrum Dx5 I believe that I use to control my G Scale Graphics Railboss Hobby. So if I take one of the extra receivers i have and plug the servo into it, then bind the receiver to the transmitter, will that get me started ?
By the way, I use servos for animating projects. I've built freight cars that dump logs, etc. Until now i had dismantled the servo circuit boards and simply used one of those inexpensive Chinese R/C set-ups to control the servo motor directly. The issue with doing it that way is that you can damage the servo motor if your not careful, depending on the application.
Go to 7:48 in this video. The pipe carrier uses a servo without it's circuit board to raise the dump bed. In this application not much damage can happen to the servo since it merely rotates 360 degrees. But this video will give you an idea of what I do with servos.
Now in this application the servo must return to it's resting position once the pipes are dumped. If I press the transmitter button too long, the motor could possibly be damaged. For this film I simply connected the wires to a power source and changed clarity to bring the servo motor back to resting.
