Default RE: Any Suggestions or Comments on this setup?

I agree with Dan, virtually any small servo will do the trick. I use a Hitec HS55 for my shutter button. I superglued the servo to the top of the camera and plugged it into my gear channel. With the control horn removed, I flipped the gear switch on the tx so the servo was in it's 'shutter pressed' position, then I put the control horn back on the servo so it was just touching the shutter button (or pressing it slightly in my case). Then I flipped the gear switch to the 'unpressed' position, and then pulled the control horn off and rotated it exactly one gears-mesh worth down. Switching the gear channel back to the pressed position brought the control horn down just enough to press the shutter, without binding the servo too badly.
