    more powerful servo

    Can I put a larger more more powerful servo on mine, did two smokes over the week end second smoke went bad two hours in the servo closed the dampener and it stuck fire when out. I forgot to turn on pit droid, I have messaging quite at night, did not here mms messages.

    Can I go larger servo with more torque or put gear box on it to increase torque.
    The wife would not like it if I was to ruin to another 10 pound butt or brisket

    So turn on pit droid and turns your alerts up

    What servo are you using? If you're not using it, the MG90S has metal gears and seems to have a fair bit of torque.

    I second the MG90s. The SG90 servos are pretty flimsy.

    Using the sg90. The gears did not seem to break, it seems to work once I got it free after being stuck for 8 hours.

    Is it getting stuck because the valve is jamming? If so that means you should adjust your timings in the configuration page so that it doesn't close so far.
