The servo is a controllable motor that can swing back and forth, or be turned to a specific position. This servo has a cross axle shaft that works with any littleBits accessory with a cross axle opening. Try attaching a flag to the servo to make it wave back and forth!

This bit is compatible with the following items:
  - Droid Inventor Kit
  - Base Inventor Kit
  - Space Rover Inventor Kit
  - Cross axle mechanical arm (not sold separately)
  - Cross axle motorMate (not sold separately)

For a replacement servo bit for other kits and accessories, see the "servo ("D shaft)" bit

The servo is a motor that can swing back and forth (like windshield wipers) as opposed to spinning round and round (like the wheels of a car). Add a mechanical arm and a great way to make your inventions throw, wave, sweep, and point.

The servo has two modes. In T"turn" mode, the input from other Bits determines the position of the hub–try using a slide dimmer to set the angle you want. This is great for when you want to throw things or point in a specific direction. In SWING mode, the servo will move back and forth on its own like a pair of windshield wipers or an automatic sweeper–the input signal controls the speed of the swing. The servo's range of motion is about 110 degrees.
