HH 2.2 Connecting your tail to Snap (method 2)

Details: In this video, we introduce Method 2 for attaching your servo and monster part to your snap program.  This method requires a little bit more time and energy, but it gives you a customizable part that can increase the range of motion of your part. Method 1 uses a standard servo horn, while this method extends that horn out farther with a paperclip. If you have the extra time and are looking for greater reach, use this method! Supplies:
  • Hummingbird Bit Microcontroller kit
  • USB cable
  • Computer with Snap account
  • Monster Manual printout
  • Cardboard
  • Card stock or thick paper
  • Scissors
  • Clear Tape (Double-sided tape and electrical tape help out too!)
