Default RE: Electric Jackscrew

Hey guys, thanks for all of the replies. Using three microswitches is what I had in mind. One for each endpointand then one for the servo to control. 3.6 or 6v motors I beleive will do the trick. What I am trying to do, still in the test phase, is set up for a Corsair with folding wings. This bird will be large enough to accomodate the weight, 123" wingspan, and my goal is to set it up similar to the original. I was thinking of using air, but I am not sure that will be enough power even if I double up on the cylinders. Plus if I can get these size motors to work, it will be much cheaper. Any drawings that will layout the wiring would be greatly appreciated. Like I said earlier, I am not an electronics guru, so I have no idea how to wire such an animal.

Thanks again.
