    The servo connectors i soldered. Now i had burned some wires the first time with my ugly soldering gun. Thats why i recommended a good one. But i guess once you spend a day trying to figure things out and at the end of the day you find the problem is because of your soldering skills, next time you quickly learn to make it properly.

    i think my servos use similar or same connector and a soldered it carefully / the second time/ so now all is fine. With good gun, solder and flux,and correct size heat shrinking its not a problem. I extra potted them i believe using my hot glue gun. I dont like leaving things to chance


    The crimp pliers i bought for general use and as i don't use them professionally, till now i haven't found a scenario where they will not serve. Their main purpose was to crimp heated carbon wire to normal heat resistant wire

    Thanks MC and Boyan
    Wishing I had got the solder version now. Did you connect all the wires or just the ones you need?

    Do you have the user LCD for programming? I don't so not sure how to set it up.

    I made longer 3 of the wires and soldered all the connectors inside. As main problem here is i live 200m from sea and typical humidity is 85% so even crimped connections will fail sometimes.

    When i connected 2 cables together and used heat shrink tubing on each core, then i cut in half a proper size silicone tube. Fitted the connection there and potted it with hot glue gun.

    You dont need LCD. You need a computer, serial port and special serial cable, check manual of what variety it was, as i remember i needed different variety for the Galil controller.

    Samsung servo software is free and self explanatory. For the Galil servo control software you have to pay some 2xx euro additionally for example hence, that's why i said before buying servos check if servo software is free like the Samsung one.
