retracts airwolf ?
Hi guys's

i've been looking round for retracts that are slow and the only way i can see it being done is with a normal servo.

i then came across a futaba 9070 programmable servo, looking at the soft ware, it say it can be programmed for retracts, but is does not say if the power cuts at the end of the travel.

i know jr make a retract servo with a travel time of 1.55 second, this is still a little to fast. have looked at air retracts, but not to sure if they can be used.

you would think that the company's would come out with a retract servo that has a slow travel time, power cuts at the end of travel.

so has anyone used the futaba 9070 servo, air rertacts or found gears that would slow a retract servo down.

not sure about the futaba servo, but the hitec line has servos that are programable for speed and travel distance. you buy the programer and then the servo is sold separately.
i use regular servos, then use a servo slower i get from hobby lobby. thats what i used onmy airwolf and it works great. the speed is also adjustable.

how did you find setting them up, so that the servo does not bind

if you are using regular servos, you can still set the end points to avoid binding.drive a rotary, fly a rotorcraft

I used the Hitec HS-75 retract servos. Naturally I can not adjust the end points. They are not as slow as a slow down unit on a regular servo, but they are slow enough for me. I installed them on a Y-cord with a reversing Y-cord. The retracts lock into place perfectly.

They can be a bit time consuming getting end point and linkage rods correct but once set up they work fine.
