Default Operating F-18 Refueling probe

Ok guys I am building a operating refuel probe for my 1/5.75 F-18 I have seen all the pictures and video but I need a picture of the servo geometry/ setup that’s being used to open the door and raise the probe all in one motion. Anybody have any info or contact info for someone who has done this?

Under the door there are a micro switch (open contact) and the piston let free another micro switch (close contact), this way only with the prove is open and the door close, the light is on.

So great this, I am with Daniel but I believe that F-18 is not anymore at your place Carlos.

Will also make such a thing on my F/A-18A when I will have the time after current projects ;-)

Two retract 180 degree micro servo setup via Y connector at 90 degree offset from each other one operating the door other operating the probe . No special mixer required .
