I corrected the pins and the Arduino seems to be fine. Perhaps they should rename it as Arduino Squeeze?

It is a program for slowing down servo movement. It is intended to control servos that rotates the main guns on a Yamato model.
Here is a recording I made with one servo attached:
It may be possible to avoid the initial servo movement by adding pull down resistors. I haven't tried that yet. This initial servo movement isn't shown in the video.

At first it will be to try it out and find out what can be done with it. Then it will probably be something about controlling lights and servos. In a submarine I think I could find lots of uses

Anyway here are a few videos I have made:'
Scratch built HMS Sheffield:
Robbe - Happy Hunter:
P 510 Søløven - Scratch built torpedo boat:
DMI Vedette (This is an old kit that went out of production about 50 years ago):
That's it. I hope you enjoyed some of all this video
