Default servo question

hey all,

i need a quick question answered. im looking into a project and a servo will need to be involved. is it possible for a servo to make multiple rotations? or will it just keep its end points? how could i give it the same affect as having multiple rotations if it wont work? basically i need something pulled away on command.

cheers

G'day Mate,
Look into a sail winch servo as used in RC sailing boats, might do the trick.

You might check Futaba's commercial section of their web site.

This is the Hitec 785HB sail winch servo that has 3.5 turns from end to end.

As Mike Mayberry said Hitec Sail Winch Servo HS-785HB details and specs..
If HS-785HB does not provide for your needs, refer to the list of modifications to servos and TX available on my web page under "Radio Systems, Accessories, Alterations and FAQ" and sub section thereof "Servo & TX alterations, calculators, clonepacs, make an ESC or winch, FAQ."
