OK - Here's the challenge. I have a IndyHelis AH-64A Apache 1/7 scale e-heli. The cannon and pilot's head are servo-animated. I plan to also animate the TADS. What I need help with is a scheme to prerecord the motions for these animated items and have it play back during the flight with a remote start and stop switch. A repeating loop that cycles the gun, TADS and Pilot's head is what I am looking for. Any ideas on how I can achieve this? Flying the heli is a full time task and I don't want to employ another person with a second transmitter as the operator for these features. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Cheers - Boyd

I made up a circuit with a single board computer that looks at an RX channel and works the lights and retracts based on where the slider is positioned. I will eventually use it to animate some things. It can be done. Wayne Brown's Apache uses a second TX and that might be cooler because you can hand that tx off and let a friend or spectator play with it while you fly.
