What servo out there

- is near an RC servo form factor e.g. about 1 or 2 inches in physical size. (the current servo is 1"x1.4"x0.7" ) with a shaft takeoff

- has a digital interface that can BOTH

- accept command to move with a specific torque / drive strength / PID P, to a desired goal position.

- return the torque / load the shaft is experiencing along with the current actual position

- quality: Metal gears, etc...

We are currently using Dynamixel XL-320's and they are just frekn weird. Strange protocol, buggy, lacking support, break easy.
