My team is looking for a good 2 motor design for wings. I have space available at the front I just need to know how exactly to make it as everywhere I look I just see pneumatics. I am basically a pushbot with a catapult at the back so that’s why I need the wings.
I would recommend a system of elastic extension, and spindle retraction (or vice versa).
How would I do that?
For example, you can use a rubber band that always pulls the flaps out, but a string around a pulley (connected to the motor) that pulls the flaps back until ready. This is just one option out of many possibilities.
