    That's great Darwin! I'll get on this soon.

    I'll commit to buying one as long as it'll swap into a standard size servo. would it be compatible with a digital servo? I have both a few TowerPro MG966R digital and some Hobbico CS-70MGBB to choose from.

    As long as the motor runs from two wires (ie not brushless) it should be fine. Might be a bit of a challenge to fit it in a servo, but I think I can!

    Even external works for me ... I thought you meant to fit it inside the case was all.

    I'd like to see it fit inside the case too. If not, it would probably be a blob of heat shrink on the end of a servo cable with a pair of wires that you would solder to the winch's motor.

    Did some R&D this morning. Got things figured out and just have to order a motor driver IC. This is going to work!

    Uses a PIC and a motor driver IC. No more winch drift!

    Hopefully I will have a few of these built by the end of the week.

    Whoa that was quick!

    There are alot of components there....how small do you figure this bad-boy will be?

    Sweet that was quick lol... and there are alot of components for testing i beleive once you figure the parts out the its just as simple as putting all together and making it work without the testing board lol

    i wish i still remembered how to do that stuff from school, but no such luck lol

    Sorry... rather than put away components I'm not using, I just jam them into the left side of the bread board.

    There is a bunch of stuff left in the circuit from my Dual Motor Dig Controller that aren't really needed for this build.

    I should be able to make it a little smaller than the driver circuit board that I yanked from the Tower Pro servo. Should be two little 8 pin ICs and a small cap and a bit of wire.
