well i kind of have my eye on a motor for each operation, but all i need is to make sure they would work and show it by writing down the calculations made..the problems is i cant know what speed do i want the satellite to rotate on and how heavy is the whole thing going to be but i am going to assume all this till i find the right paprameters later on..
