The MG996R is a popular servo motor for beginner and maker projects. This servo rotates within a fixed angle range (0 - 180 degrees), and features metal gears which allow for a high power drive in contrast to its plastic counterparts.
The servo motor includes 4 types of servo mounting arms, an axel screw to mount a servo arm, and mounting screws, grommets and metal studs to mount the servo to a surface.
The MG996R is an improved version of the MG995, featuring a new PCB and IC for better control capabilities, and improved motor and gearing to improve dead bandwidth and centering.
The motor comes in two variants:
- 180 degree rotation angle, and
- 360 degree rotation
