RE: tandem SC servos
Thanks jaelon......that's exactly the type of flexible application! Although I hadn't figured what a side-by-side arrangement might be. The arrangement I had in mind for my application was one in the bow and one about mid-ship, connected by a 4-40 rod.
Incidently, one of the aspects discussed in Richard Carignan's article that I didn't mention is the giant holding power yielded by 180* at the fully (or nearly) rotated. The numbers he quotes are about 59.4 ounces of force ( based on the old Futaba 3003) at neutral, growing to 84 ounces at 45* ....and as the servo reaches an over-locked condition, the power is whatever the strength of the material the servo is made of, and the strength of the installation.....with very little increase in actuating (current) load.
That's an aspect that I haven't seen mentioned in other items I've read.
Anyway, thanks for the pix.
