    Servo X DC Motors

    Hello All
    I intend to build a Throttle with automatic system.
    I use Opencockpit interface and have already USB Servo cards.
    Some one could tell me if its fine for my project or I Should go to DC Motors.
    What kind of servo is a great one if its indicated.
    Thanks
    Cesar

    Find a roll or pitch servo from a small GA aircraft autopilot. Thats what i have, works great. Has a clutch that can be manually overidden in an emergency, cable and or chain driven, tough as nails and fairly cheap. Use either the servo or dc card to control it.
