Default Electric Linear Actuator Connection??

I have a linear actuator that I want to use on my RC Plane. But the Linear Actuator only has a black and red wire. How would I wire this to my Tactic receiver to power to extend and reverse to retract?? I can't seem to find information on how to wire this.

Thanks for the help

You can't. It's made to work on straight DC power. All you could do is use the RC gear to work a switch that would operate the actuator. You'll be better off buying a retract servo.

If you only have a red and black wire. Then you have power and return but no signal, other words no command.
