    Stalk up and down ?

    Hey guys. How do u guys lock your stalk up and down. Like a MR. I got a remote but the motor is to big for my head to fit in the lid. Well my head is to big lol. I have commander 8 metal ears on a FP P. any suggestions.

    The only thing I can think to recommend is one of those servo motors they use to control the steering mechanisms in an RC car. It might work.

    Yeah I tried it. My head won't fit in the lid with it in. Would like to be able to have it go up and down manually . With it locking like my master replica . Figuard someone had taken one apart at one time. I've look for some kind of locking nut but no luck. I have some small earth magnets i'll probley drill in but not sure they will hold it up good.
    Thanks though

    Try and find a rubber washer or something to create friction on the stalk man.

    Thanks f4r and nasty I'll try that and
    Go by the hobbie shop and check on a low profile servo. Would have though the kit I got would have had the smallest servo

    the servo that came with my kit was a tad too big as well so I brought a lower profile and has metal gears as well. The first one had the plastic gears which failed while I was hooking it all up and the stalk kept coming down hence I turned to the metal gears. So far so good and no probs.
