setPicSize("small" | "large")
switches the default camera image size between a full 1280x800 pixel frame or a smaller and faster 427x266 pixel frame

servo(id, position)
controls up to 4 servos attached to the fluke2 servo ports. The id parameter ranges from 0-3 with 0 being closest to the bottom edge of the fluke. The position value ranges from 0-255. The servo motor connectors must be attached as in the image below. The connector pinout is GND, Power, Signal with the signal pin closest to the right edge of the board.
