Plastic micro servo adapter not working with servo.

@adafruit

Purchased the Plastic Micro Servo adapter, https://www.adafruit.com/product/4252, and your Continuous Rotation Micro Servo, and unfortunately the adapter doesn't fit onto the shaft. It was mentioned that the adapter only works with your micro servo, did I incorrectly assume that this particular servo which you also sell, https://www.adafruit.com/product/2442, was going to be the same as the regular micro servo? I needed the full 360º and thought it was otherwise the same as https://www.adafruit.com/product/169.

Is there are CR Servo that you carry that would fit the adapter?

Thank you!

Unfortunately, the servo manufacturer's have not got their act together to standardize spline patterns. So there is much incompatibility between brands (and in some cases between different models of the same brand).

We do have a tutorial on modifying the SG92R for continuous rotation here.
