thank you

i used a voltage regulator ($7 from a electronics store) to knock the 12v down to 6volt for the RX and control servo

the wiper motor was stripped of all extra brushes etc... was left with two wires going to two opposing brushes

ive been spending along time tring different schems ...once ive tgested one that i think is good then ill post up a simple schem

i dont know how heavy it is but the pocket quad it was is capable of carrying 100kgs and its no where near that... yet lol

12 drill i think might be too fast... idunno might try it

cheers
