FWIW here are a few pics of a work in progress on an approach for a TQ. This is for the 747 but you can use the basic setup for any TQ, just change the type and number of upper handles.
The levers are connected via a cable and chain to a sprocket driven by a DC motor. RC servos modified for continuous rotation would work, but not as precise and smooth. Phidgets are used for I/O and control.
The pics been compressed to save bandwidth/load time.
