    Motors for AT?

    I cant seem to figure this part out

    do I use servos or stepper motors for autothrottles?
    I will be using open cockpits interface.

    Thanks

    For those (like me) struggling with the question what kind of motor to use for the A/T:

    DC motor, Servo, Stepper, Modified Servo, Analog or Digital Servo, Wife or Children ..

    Here's a very well written introduction for starters of the A/T.
