Theory When it comes to making things move, servo motors are great. They are easy to use, quite low power, and only require one wire to control their position. In this section we learn a little more about how to use Servo motors. We also take a look at the 555 timer IC, which is used to generate the pulses for the project. This timer chip is extremely versatile and it is useful to know how to use it. Ideas The Evil Genius might like to make more than one turret connected to the same joystick. That way, when the joystick is moved, all the turrets move.
Unlike the coil gun of the previous chapter, trebuchets do this in an efficient manner. The action of a trebuchet is shown in the sequence of diagrams in Figure 2-2. The trebuchet has a sling attached to the throwing arm. So, initially the projectile is almost Figure 2-1 The Evil Genius trebuchet underneath the weight (Figure 2-2A). As the weight falls, the throwing end of the arm rises, pulling the sling and projectile along the slide on the base of the trebuchet. At some point, the projectile leaves the slide (B) and is swung round in a wide arc as the weight keeps falling (C).
75 to its rightmost position. The servo motor expects there to be a pulse at least every 20 milliseconds for the servo to hold its position.
