Retract servo programming

Post by sdavies » Wed Sep 19, 2018 5:14 am

I have a retract servo that I am trying to set up to swing the canard on a Beech Starship.
As a retract servo, the arm rotates 180 degrees but as a wing swinger, I want only 90 degrees.
Is it possible to configure this in ErSky9x?
(I have tried many combinations of full/half, limits etc without success.)
Cheers and thanks,
Stephen

You need only half of the movement.
I guess you already tried something like

CHx 50% FULL (switch) AIL

Can this retract servo do positions between 180 and zero.

I have a pair of electric retracts and they only do full movements. Of the pulse comes above a dertien tresshold it simply does the full motion. It doesn't have a potentiometer to measure angle.

I've experimented some more but it seems that the servo can only do the full traverse.
I've ordered a new (standard) servo.
Thanks,
Stephen
