If you do a lot with servos this could be a handy tool to have on your shelf.

If so, the next step might be to simplify it and put it in a case of some sort. The prototype in this guide was built using Feather ecosystem components for ease of construction using the tripler wing. Since using 5v for the servo was a requirement, being battery powered wasn't. That makes it easy to switch to an ItsyBitsy M0 Express (it has no onboard battery support). The OLED display comes in a breakout version that's identical functionally to the FeatherWing for our purpose (it is just the display, no buttons). The level shifter and rotary encoder don't change.
