Maker Hangar is a 15-part video series by Lucas Weakley.
In Episode 11 of Maker Hangar (the third episode in building the Maker Trainer) Lucas Weakley shows us how to install all the servos, the motor, the receiver, and rout all the wires in the Maker Trainer. These next steps require a bit of patience and precision so take your time and everything will come out just fine.
Additional Materials: • Popsicle sticks • Small piece of plywood (about 2.5″x2.5″) • Coffee straw or small tube • 0.047″/1.19mm music wire
