Joe,  I'll do a short writeup/eval with a parts list, concept, pics, etc. after I do the install and flight test. Hope to get at it during the back half of this week.  Feel free to copy, modify as you need to!  It's my pleasure to be able to contribute something back to the forum and people who make it all such a great resource!!

I like that! I was looking at something else to do mine but an RC servo is just the ticket! Can you post a parts list and schematic and would you mind if we copy your idea?
