I see my problem now. When I first read the instructions on the link, I did not understand what he meant by "switching to hardware mode". At the time I did not have the joysticks and did not understand what that meant. Now I do.
I'm going to do some more reading and then give it a try. Just a little nervous because this is a one-way ticket and I really don't feel like shelling out more for another control board if I screw it up.
Thanks to those who read and responded. I love how active this forum is.
Hey there. I'm just wondering if you had any luck with controlling a ServoStik with GPIO? Did you convert the board to hardware mode and have success?
