'OT: Remote Control'
1998\11\02@174734 by Tony Nixon

Hi all,

I'm wondering if someone with remote control experience can help me.
I've seen quite a bit of traffic here on the subject.

I need to remote control a 'real' car using a similar setup to a model
one.

It only needs two controls, accelerate to a pre set speed and stop.

The braking system is air operated by a 4-20mA solenoid on board the
vehicle and acceleration I presume will be by a servo on the accelerator
linkage.

If anyone has any ideas on what type of RC eqipment I need can they
please email me privately?

Use servos with high torque.

Try contacting fredspamKILLspamfmadirect.com (http://www.fmadirect.com).  They've done
some support of RPV's for the military, and would be a good first choice as
a vendor as well.  And mention who told you about them while you're at it,
please.

Thanks.

Andy

Also Condor R/C has been showing some giant (metal case) heavy
duty servos (one with a linear output shaft) at Toledo.

Along the same lines: In my MCM (and other) catalogs there are electrical
automotive door lock actuators which seem to give a travel of about 1 inch
with respectable force for $6 each. Has anyone investigated these for
servo purposes ?

Not acquainted with MCM - Could someone enlighten me?

TIA, Jack

Sorry, I have the dead tree version. No cookies, just a coffee spot ;)

The item that arose my interest was Order# 60-6955 'High Powered Door
Lock Actuator' at $5.39 ea. in case it helps. (This is for automotive use
as I've said before - i.e. 12 V motor driven geared bar with linear motion
if I read the catalog photo right - should contain a slip clutch to
spare the fuses <g>).
