Realtime dynamixel control

I am trying to control my dynamixel motor in real time. I have been using rostopic to do this but it still seems jumpy because of the 3 second latching. Are there any better ways to control the servos in real-time, or is there a way to disable the 3 second latching with rostopic?

If by realtime you mean interactive frequencies (in the order of tens of Hz), you can write a simple publisher node in C++ or Python that streams commands to the topic. You can also check out rqt_publisher.

Yes, like I suggested in Change publish and latch time :).
