OK, here it is - the Servo Boss (http://www.gadgetgangster.com/find-a-project/56?projectnum=159). It's a servo tester kit that you can get from Gadget Gangster.

I'd like to know what you all think and if there are any other features that would be nice to add.

Step 3 in the Instructable (http://www.instructables.com/id/Building-the-ServoBoss-a-servo-tester-from-Gadget/) gives a good view of all the components and their descriptions.

That is a GREAT video demonstrating the ServoBoss.

Very Nice...

This is one of those things that I wouldn't think I would need...but if I had it I would use it all the time ; )

Rich,

I love the updated videos!

Would love to see servo timing testing, but like you said previously, not based on current draw.

W9GFO,

I meant to ask earlier...how did you measure the voltage given by the source onto the LCD?

Thanks for the nice comments. Making the videos has taken a lot longer than I would've thought.

The voltage is done by using a sigma delta circuit as described in the AN001 Propeller COunters app note.
