    Excellent news with the camera, and 4Tronix i2C PWM, I’ll give it a try laters.
    Thankyou 🙂

    I love the development work you are doing and ScratchGPIO is a great tool.

    I am having problems controlling a PWM servo from Scratch. No matter how i try to shape a pules (wait statement, repeat loop, etc.) the FS5106B (FEETECH RC Model Co.,Ltd.) 3-wire servo only ever goes in one direction. There is a python module (‘servod’) that seems to work, but extended use destabilises the Pi.

    So… are there any commands/features in the latest version which would simplify the control of a 3-wire PWM servo with range 700~2300μsec?

      ScratchGPIO has limited and specific support for servos using Servod but if you can afford it, the adafruit pwm/servo board takes away most of the pain and is supported by ScratchGPIO6 alpha
