My question is: could
the servos drive springs attached to the control cables. This has been done
in aircraft for pitch trim and works pretty well. Seems simpler and more
aerodynamic than trim tabs that work opposite of the desired result. Either
way, I am interested.
Thresholds and feedback overruns make it more trouble than its worth.But we
are experimental engineers.Tommy W.
