calibrating servos
Is there a tutorial of how to calibrate the servos someplace online? I did not buy the kit so my servos did not come precalibrated - they are hooked up right but not at the correct angle. Thank you!

Take a look to the very end of this page: http://www.jjrobots.com/iboardbot-assemb...tructions/
There are photos of the servos with the correct orientation.

RE: calibrating servos
Nice timing @kittybot, I just hit the same issue.

While I appreciate the info at the bottom of the assembly page, I'd still prefer just to simply know what position the servo needs to be before putting the servo horn on. Centered? or to one side or another?

As I understand it, the recommended procedure is this: (please correct me if wrong)
-Turn on iBoardBot WITHOUT servo arms attached
-Do not send instructions to the bot (it will be in standby/idle mode AND servos will be set to stand-by position)
-Attach the arms according to pics in the assembly doc (bottom of page)
-Check for issues during operation, move arms one notch if needed

Apparently the eraser touches the glass on standby, and the lifting servo does not.
