    Servo recommendations

    Good evening,

    I was planning to create some cockpit gauges by using some gauge software such as FsxPand but am interested in experimenting with making some servo gauges. I have had a look for servos and there are so many to choose from. I am guessing that I would need to explore different types as some will need a greater degree of travel than others. Would anybody mind sharing what they have tried or are using or what to avoid.
    Thanks in anticipation
    Marc

    Marc,
    For all my gauges on our King Air sim I used these stepper motors, they are designed for the job and are very cheap http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/25x-Instru...AAAOSw~AVYv8n0

    Thank you for the reply. What have you found to be the advantages/disadvantages to using steppers over servos other than the greater range of rotation?
