Installation Mounting on the Pi (optional) With most newer Raspberry Pis it is possible to mount the ThunderBorg directly to your Raspberry Pi: The six-pin socket on the ThunderBorg should fit snuggly on the first six GPIO pins of the Raspberry Pi. If you are using a Pi Zero you will need to solder pins to the first six GPIO pins before mounting the ZeroBorg.

UltraBorg comes with two special features which should prevent damage to your servos: Limits to prevent you moving too far Powers up the servo to a safe position When you get an UltraBorg these features are already configured for you, but there is a wrinkle. Not all servos are the same, so to be safe the limits we set are of a range supported by standard servos. This matters...
