About the Servo Erector Set
Think of the Lynxmotion series of servo brackets as an Erector Set for servos. These components are extremely versatile, making virtually any mechanical arrangement possible. It's now possible to build custom robots to your specifications! The brackets are available in black anodized aluminum. The ball bearings provide for precise low friction movement. The tubing, hubs and hub connectors are precision fit and really expand what is possible to build. They are made in the USA from high quality aluminum alloy. We also have a series of laser cut Lexan chassis, torso, and electronics carriers that truly complete the set.

If you want to build a variety of different robots using the SES system, consider the complete SES V1.1 Construction Kit which contains everything you need to get started.

How Does it Work?
You can build an entire assembly using just the bracket components, then populate the assembly with servos using only two screws for the servo horn, and four push in rivet fasteners to secure the servo body. This makes it surprisingly quick and easy to design and build rugged assemblies. If nylon fasteners cannot withstand the loads, 3mm hardware (now included with most of the brackets) is substituted. Replacing or swapping a servo is effortless, as the assembly doesn't need to be taken apart. To get an idea how to put together a system, check out this link.

Control
The new BotBoarduino is based on the Arduino Duemilanove microcontroller and allows you not only to control servos, but store and run programs independently of a computer. The BotBoarduino can be used on its own or in conjunction with the SSC-32 servo controller for robots requiring many servos. You can also hook up the BotBoarduino to a PS2 controller for remote control of your robotic creation. The Bot Board is designed for the Basic Stamp and Basic Micro microcontrollers and is great if you already know some Basic programming.

The Servo Erector Set V1.1 is the first construction kit to include a full version of FlowBotics Studio V2 which uses a graphical and text based environment. There are projects for five sample robots; the 2WD rover; AL5D robotic arm; BRAT biped; SQ3 quadruped and MH2 hexapod. The kit includes all the parts you need to get started building and programming complex robots.

The new FlowBotics Studio V2 is currently compatible with a range of Lynxmotion robots including the 2WD, AL5 series, MH2, SQ3 and BRAT. Within the FlowBotics Studio program you will find a sample project where you can control the motion of each of these robots by simply moving a graphical representation of each robot. For example for the AL5D arm, the project screen shows a visual representation of the robot from the side and top, making it easier to position the servos for each sequence. You can record and playback sequences and much, much more! FlowBotics Studio can be found here.

Hitec Servo Brackets
Our selection of standard brackets can use most standard size Hitec analog or digital servos. The HS-3xx, 4xx, 5xx, 6xx, 54xx, 56xx, and 59xx servos are verified to fit. Note that servos from other manufacturers are not guaranteed (nor likely) to work. With the new ultra powerful digital servos it is now possible to control larger, more complex assemblies than ever before. The HS-5685 digital servo is the most cost effective power house digital servo.

The large brackets line can use several Hitec large size normal or digital servos. The HS-755HB, HS-755MG, HS-5745MG, HS-805BB/MG servos are verified to fit. Note that servos from other manufacturers will likely not be compatible with these brackets.

The micro brackets line can use several Hitec micro size servos. The HS-85BB and HS-85MG servos are verified to fit. Note that servos from other manufacturers will likely not be compatible with these brackets.
