Obviously this article could use some attention. Servo motors are a major technology topic and I'd think this page gets a lot of hits.
The article lacks clear expertise on the topic, a reasonable explanation of what a servo motor really is and, not least of all, sources. Someone needs to get busy. Although I have built controllers for servo motors, I don't consider myself to have any sort of authority on the topic. I came here to find information and I was dismayed that such an important page should have so little. Should I end up learning something that I can confidently contribute, I'll return and attempt a rewrite.
I'm not at all sure that the sample Arduino code is appropriate. I didn't look at the copyright. Voronwae (talk) 05:25, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

The article says, "A servomotor consumes power as it rotates to the commanded position but then the servomotor rests."
That's not true. The power consumption of a servomotor varies with torque, not speed. If the motor must produce torque in order to hold a fixed position (i.e., because some external force is trying to push the load out of position) then it will consume power even though the load is not moving. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 19:26, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
