Yes correct - The eTracts use a worm drive so no servo is required. I would propose a sequencer which interprets the gear switch position and triggers first the doors open/then the gear. The reverse for in so first the gear/then the doors close. They are very reliable and modular. EDF pilots in the States are struggling with mechanical doors on the new HL f-18, Eurofighter 90mm EDFs, and also the Big F-22 and Mig-29 twin 70mm all have gear doors which are mechanical. Many are just removing the doors.
