I do theater effects and animatronic puppets, I've got a job that needs a motor and controller system for a wing flap. robotpower.com seems to have some possibilities, but a bit of overkill. Much googling hasn't gotten me what I need, so I thought I'd ask here.
All I want to end up with is a motor of 10A stall with an encoder (or an encoder on the mech), a pot to set the speed, and an on/off switch. But I want the motor to maintain it's speed despite variations in the load as the thing flaps. I think I'm going to use a worm gear from the motor to the geartrain, further isolating the motor from mechanical feedback.
Any product suggestions? Thanks.
