screwjack actuator

Postby Frank Skilbeck » May 21st, 2020, 12:43 pm

Looking to activate a canopy opening and a commercial linear actuator is going to be a bit too long to fit in easily. One option would be to convert a servo to drive a threaded bar with end stop microswitches, similar to an electric retract. Anybody done this?

Yes I did it for a mate to operate wing swing on a small Tornado. You first need to remove the internal stops on the gearbox to allow it to rotate fully, then take the wires off the feedback pot.
I will have to check what I did next.
