    Works great on the bench... combat to come.

    I ordered two of these to control my spinning weapon for Robogames. I don't have combat experience for this part, yet, but I expect it to work fine there.

    I gave 4 instead of 5 stars only because this controller requires two cables that do not come "in the box".

    To program it, you need a Windows computer and an AdaFruit 954 cable.

    To connect it to your receiver, you'll need a servo extension with an "open male end". That part is sold here as Item #276-1425, "3-Wire Extension Cable 24 inches".

    In some ways this is a premature review, but I wanted to highlight the two cables that you need to use this device.

    Summary: so far I am a happy user, and plan to use this in my next robot.
