I have 3 really old servos from an Airtronic Vanguard FM radio system from the late 80's (maybe early 90's), brand new and never used, that I would like to hook up to an Arduino for a project...
Does anyone know if they work the same way as the "modern" ones, ie Power / Ground / Signal on the 3 (black) wires? I don't want to smoke my Arduino Uno on my very first "official" project... :o

Thanks!

Hi,

If you can post photo of your servo motors may be it would be easy to answer but if your servo has GND VCC and Signal wires and it works on 5V then you are good to go. It will work perfectly fine with Arduino.
