Select Kit

Recommended servos are Hitec HS-53 x1, HS-425BB x3, HS645MG x1.  These are included in the Deluxe Kit.

IMPORTANT: While the Raven Kits are designed to be easy to build, some basic experience with servo-driven projects is recommended.  Kits do not include a controller or power supply for the raven.  You will need a servo controller to make the raven work. If you do not have a system yet, the simplest solution I can recommend to get your bird moving is the Pololu Mini Maestro.  For more advanced programming and routines, I suggest Visual Show Automation software and a compatible board (such as the SSC-32).  A 6v 5A DC power supply is recommended.  Because you build the Raven yourself, there is no guarantee or warranty on the kit components.
