Hi Dan
Is this running a forward only esc ? ( NO reverse ? ) If so , this may help , idea
wise... our guys make dumb-simple hulls to put buoys out for races - a small servo
with 2 sided horn is used . the idea is , push the TX stick up and the servo turns and
one side of the horn pushes against a switch which activates the motor . so now you
are where you want to be , pull the TX stick down and the servo turns the other way
and on our boats , it moves a little rod that is holding the buoy weight at the
transom , pin moves , weight drops . in your case , a line could lead to something
as simple a a cotter pin that hold yor ramp door closed , servo moves , pins pulls
out of hole and bait slides off the ramp. the switch for the motor is just a micro-
switch , only a little pressure is needed to send power to the motor ...
OK , now I'll sit back and wait for the correct way to do this by guys that really
know about this stuff .... lol
