Servo testing and break-in

Using a CCPM servo consistency master unit to run in and test new servos before they go on the model. Particularly good when using cheapo servos and finding faulty ones before they cause any accidents. Running them for a few hours like this runs in the motors and potentiometers, when its done they seem to run faster and smoother.

Here, note that there is an SMA extension cable, which ends in a wooden plate which is embedded in the foam. Very neat solution for plugging in an antenna from the outside of the craft.
