Electric Flap motor or mechanism for flap cables - Backcountry Pilot. Firgelli OS Series 200lbs, 6" Stroke Feedback Linear Actuator. Dynamic Force: 200 lbsStroke: 6''Voltage: 12VSpeed: .30"/sComes with a built-in optical sensor and limit switchesProvides feedback when you need itCan be input to an external controller such as an Arduino When you need to know exact positioning of your actuators, the Firgelli OS Series 200lbs, 6" Stroke Feedback Linear Actuator is what you need.

Firgelli OS Series 200lbs, 6" Stroke Feedback Linear Actuator

This powerful, reliable actuator comes with a built-in optical sensor that provides feedback when you need it. It has no built-in controller, but do provides single phase pulses as position feedback signal that can be input to an external controller such as Arduino. The Firgelli OS Series 200lbs, 6" Stroke Feedback Linear Actuator is equipped with a 10 hole optical encoder disk that with the gearing to the actuator output shaft will send 100 pulses/inch of stroke ( +/- 5 pulses). It comes equipped with built-in limit switches, is manufactured with high-grade aluminum outer and inner tubes, and come in stroke lengths of 6". Back to top.

RV-3: Electric Flap Actuator - VAF Forums. Although the stock RV-3 design has simple and effective manual flaps, we wanted to do something different with the interior that wouldn’t really leave room for the flap handle.

RV-3: Electric Flap Actuator - VAF Forums

We weren’t exactly pioneering electric flaps on a -3….that had already been done by a number of people, including Randy Lervold. Randy used a custom version of the “standard” linear actuator that Van’s sells, but when we tried to go that route, the response we got back from the supplier was “we won’t supply to aviation projects”. Hmmm….ok, I guess we’ll just go to the internet and search for “DC linear Actuators”. Here we go – only about 100,000 hits or so. And this model seems to be pretty standard in the 12 volt world with 120 lbs capacity and whatever stroke length you want (as long as it is even inches) . One other modification we had to make was how it attached. Paul. L16 Linear Actuator, 140mm, 35:1, 12V w/ Potentiometer Feedback.

• Gear ratio: 35:1• Stroke: 140mm• Max Speed (no load): 32mm/s• Input voltage: 0-15 VDC, Rated at 12VDC• Stall current: 650mA @ 12V• Comes with Potentiometer Feedback Actuonix introduces the L16 Linear Actuator, 140mm, 35:1, 12V w/ Potentiometer Feedback.

Actuonix's unique line of Miniature Linear Actuators enables a new generation of motion-enabled product designs, with capabilities that have never before been combined in a device of this size. These linear actuators are a superior alternative to designing your own push/pull mechanisms. The L16 actuators are complete, self contained linear motion devices with position feedback for sophisticated position control capabilities. Simply apply a DC voltage to extend the actuator, and reverse the polarity to retract it. High Desert Soaring.

How birds soar to great heights: Mathematical models offer clues to greater efficiency for glider pilots. Migratory birds often use warm, rising atmospheric currents to gain height with little energy expenditure when flying over long distances.

How birds soar to great heights: Mathematical models offer clues to greater efficiency for glider pilots

It's a behavior known as thermal soaring that requires complex decision-making within the turbulent environment of a rising column of warm air from the sun baked surface of the earth. But exactly how birds navigate within this ever-changing environment to optimize their thermal soaring was unknown until a team of physicists and biologists at the University of California San Diego took an exacting computational look at the problem. In this week's online version of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the scientists demonstrated with mathematical models how glider pilots might be able to soar more efficiently by adopting the learning strategies that birds use to navigate their way through thermals.
