hello 

i trying to use a servo pi board all run nice with the example 

is it possible to use the the GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM) mode ?

i find in ServoPi.py file in

line 141 : GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BOARD) 

line 142,284,294 : GPIO.setup(7, GPIO.OUT)

can i tweak these 4 line to run BCM mode ?

Hello There shouldn't be any problems with using BCM mode to access the GPIO port.

You should just need to change line 141 to GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM) and update all references to GPIO 7 to be 4 instead.
