Pin function on board from Ebay

Post by zajizunenu » Tue Jul 10, 2018 11:38 am

Hi all,

This is my first post here, and hopefully I placed it in the correct category. If not then I will delete it and repost in the correct one.

I bought a cheap controller from Ebay, and I am having some issues identifying the function of the pins. Please see the photo:

I played around with an Arduino Uno some years ago, but it didn't look anything like this.

Could anyone please identify what the function of the "S", "V", and "G" pins are? Are there any wiring examples with boards like this out there?

If figured it out, and if anyone else wants to know its:
"S": Input or output pins
"V": 5V pins
"G": Ground pins

Kinda intuitive, come to think about it.

That is one of the more common pinouts for an RC servo, so most likely, the S is for servo.
