This Fitec Mini Servo is a great value multi-purpose micro size servo that is ideal for use with micro-controller systems like the BBC microbit, Arduino, Raspberry Pi and PICAXE. It's miniature size also makes it great for use in radio controlled models.
This servo can rotate approximately 180 degrees, 90 in each direction and it comes with mounting screws and a range of horns to suit most applications. You can use any servo code, hardware or library to control these servos, so it's great for beginners who want to make things move without the need for a motor driver board.
- Although the stated operating voltage for this servo is outside of the the specs for the microbit, we use this servo with the microbit regularly with no issues.

Hi Peter, The current drain on this servo is between 0.1-0.5A, and the voltage range is between 3-6V’s.
Hi Jon, the duty cycle is between 1-2ms. Position "0" (1.5 ms pulse) is middle, "90" (~1 ms pulse) is all the way to the left, 1.5ms pulse) is middle, "90" (~2 ms pulse) is all the way to the right, "180" (1 ms pulse) is all the way to the left. Power and signal are both 5V, PWM is rail to rail, PWM frequency is 50Hz (20ms period).
You can connect one servo directly to the BBC micro:bit, using the 0 and 3V pin on the micro:bit to power the servo. Alternatively you can connect three servos up to a secondary power supply and then connect the one servo to each output pin on the BBC micro:bit.
Yes any micro-controller should be able to do it, you control the position by changing the ratio of time a pulse is high to the time it is low. I suspect there is a servo command or if not you want to use pulse width modulation.
Unfortunately I’ve not got access to the Genie software so can’t advise on the specifics for that program.
The torque of the servo is 1.8KG/cm based on a power supply of 4.8V’s.
