? Could you use an ohms type gage sending unit as the control circuit?
The servo uses a reastat for position . A '70'sGM temp sender is (if I remember correctly) 30ohms cold 120ohms hot. Or some variation of that. Put the sender in line with the position reastat. Thie would skue the position, causeing the arm to move , and the servo would think it was just holding the single point . Factory is centered.
The compleet logic /power circuit would consist of ; BEC (battery elimination circuit capable of 1 to 6s lipo in and programmable out,6v stock)servo and resistor based temperature sender.
?am I on track?
A basic bec will handle 25amps at up to 24v=6s lipo=4.2/cell@ full charge nominal .
High doller 50amp and 52v nominal.
