I'm trying to use the 16 channel servo driver. I follow the tutorial and my i2c see connection seems to be working fine. I've tried several servomotors, and when I run the example.py, they only twitch slightly back and forth. I don't fully understand the frequency and pulse width settings. I wish there was more documentation/explanation in the tutorial. Any idea why my servos aren't working? One is a small Emax ES08A and the other is a Hitec HS-5645MG (tried with power straight from the 16 channel board, and directly from the power source.
I've used solder-less pins. I've tried 9v and 12v from AC source. I have everything wired up as described in the tutorial. I've triple and quadruple checked the wiring. The only difference I've found in my setup, is that when running the i2cdetect command, I get the 40, at 0x40, but not the 70 at 0x70, as shown in this photo: http://learn.adafruit.com/assets/1700
