I’ve been looking for a relatively cheap solution for the main landing gear on my current project which is a scratch built Hercules C-130. I want to build an screw jack mechanism using a continuous rotational servo. I think the Micro Maestro 6-Channel USB Servo Controller may offer a solution for this. Would I be able to program the deploy and retract operations into this controller and initiate both programs from the Gear Switch channel on the RC receiver? Or is can I use limit switches along with this controller to control when the servo stops rotating at both ends of the travel limits of the screw jack?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
