Take the servo that will be mounted as the left wing and attach its alligator clips to the Circuit Playground Express.

  • Servo ground (black wire) to board GND
  • Servo power (red wire) to board 3.3V
  • Servo data (white wire) to board A3

Mount the Circuit Playground Express

Mount the Circuit Playground Express with the M3 standoffs from the bolt-on kit to the bat body. Utilize the following pads for mounting:

  • A2
  • A1
  • A0
  • A7
  • A5
  • A4

Mount the Servo Motors

Mount the servos to the bat body using M2 screws. Make sure they are oriented with the circular motor gear at the top.

Attach the Wings

Attach each bat wing to their respective servo gear with an M2 screw.

Alternative Mounting

If you have trouble getting the M2 screw for the wings to be tight enough, you can glue one of the servo horns to the wing and mount them that way.
