    Roy,

    Being a noobie I’ll have to figure out how the put up a video but I can do it for it as it is now ( 1 second delay and 10 seconds operation)
    I’ve only just started working on the all singing all dancing version πŸ˜€

    Hi Brian,
    Sounds like a video is in order!
    With all that working, if you get the time.

    Great job!

    Regards Roy

    Hi Roy,

    It does indeed. Using my RadioMaster TX16S and just a standard servo it’s a simple setup. This tx allows me to simply set the end points, delay before operation and duration: all at the flick of a switch.

    I plan on adding flashing amber LEDs to the bridge and, the sound of truck reversing warning beeps during the raising and lowering operation. The tx will allow me to output to more than one channel from a single input so the same switch that drives the servo can also output to another channel to operate a remote switch for the lights and wav file playback.

    Cool huh?

    Regards
    Brian

    Hi MotoPilot,

    Does the Cabin elevate as well?
    Looks like a neat job.

    Regards Roy
