Servo not working correctly
I just received my kit and have everything assembled to my knowledge correctly. When doing the setup in inkscape I cannot get the toggle of the raise and lower pen to work correctly. When clicking on apply the servo will more one time and that is it unless I change the value of the "Pen up position". It will go up and down based on that value but the pen down will not work no matter what value I change it too. Huh

RE: Servo not working correctly
What values are you using? Have to tried to swap those values (UP <-> DOWN) even if they look off?

RE: Servo not working correctly
I have exactly the same problem. I built the sphero bot today from original parts ordered from jjrobots. Is there a solution ?

RE: Servo not working correctly
I had the same problem (or still have) but I found a work-around: you can open the serial monitor inside the Arduino Software and enter "TP" (command to toggle the pen) manually. Its only necessary to close the serial monitor before clicking "apply" in Inkscape.
