It would probably be better to ask for assistance instead of asking for someone to do your work.

What errors is the code producing? From a simple glance, it looks like this line is only half complete:

  1. set_servo_position(1,

Spamming my inbox and posting four different programs is not how to get help. Remember that we are here to assist, not to do.

Thanks.

Well the first step in diagnosing your problem is to know what errors your code is producing. Could you copy and paste those errors onto the forum? Once we have an idea of what is wrong, we can help you get your code working.
