Magnetic Actuators

Until recently, magnetic actuators were the only option for sub 30gm micro models. The advent of tiny servos and module systems like the AR6400 have lowered the bar, but for really small model aircraft, actuators are the only solution. Coupled with a good receiver (e.g. the DT DSM2 Actuator Receivers), magnetic actuators make it possible to build and fly model aircraft with auw down to 2 or 3 gm.

The actuators listed below are presented in order of increasing torque and weight.

I got a behind the scenes tour of that place

Back in the 80's.
got to see the control system, control room, etc.
Also got a behind the scenes tour of the 'Star Wars' ride.
The theater you sit in is a jumbo jet flight simulator up on these enormous hydraulic actuators that make the theater move around.
Was way more interesting than the actual ride.

Whats your problem?

You seem to take an abnormal amount of pleasure in telling other folks what they are and are not. I didnt ask for advice from you, I asked for job leads from the board.
In between the time I last posted and this post, I was offered a position as a supervisor, in a high tech petroleum company, making hydraulic manifolds for actuators that control the flow of petroleum through the lines. Not bad for a worthless guy, huh?
Just goes to show that not even you, The Almighty, knows everything. And as for the union comment, the only way I ever knew I was in a union was from the dues being deducted from my check
