QT Py and Servo Prep
Get the QT Py and analog feedback servo ready to wire.
The jumper wires feature connectors that will be removed using wire cutters.
Tin Wires from Servo
Using wire stripper, remove a bit of insulation from each wire from the analog feedback servo.
Third helping hands can help keep the wires steady while soldering.
Tin each wire by adding a bit of solder to prevent the strands of wire from fraying.
Prepped Servo Wires
The wires from the analog feedback servo will be soldered to the pin on the QT Py.
An optional bit of heat shrink tubing can be used to keep the four wires from the analog feedback servo together.
Solder Wires to QT Py
Connect the four wires from analog feedback servo to the following pins on the QT Py.
- Red wire to 5V pin
- Brown wire to GND pin
- Orange wire to A1 pin
- White wire to A2 pin
Copper and Wire
Get the copper tape and a piece of 30AWG wire ready to connect together.
Measure and cut a piece of copper tape about 3in(76mm) in length.
Measure and cut a piece of wire to about 5in (127mm) in length.
Solder Wire to Copper
Using wire strippers, remove a bit of insulation from both ends of the wire.
Tin both ends of the wire by adding a bit of solder.
Tin one end of the copper tape by adding a small amount of solder.
Solder the wire to the piece of copper tape by heating up the tinned area.
Connect Copper Tape
Take a moment to inspect the copper tape and wire to ensure they have been properly soldered together.
Solder Copper Tape Wire
Connect the wire from the piece of copper tape to the TX pin on the QT Py.
A helping hands tool can keep things sturdy while soldering.
