I have used a basic single servo with pushrods. I use rubberbands (to be replaced with springs tonight) to assist the u/c in coming up. While it worked without the assistance on the bench, the prop blast stopped it fully retracting (unless I dropped to 6" in ground effect).
I'll take a photo of it tonight but this was the 3rd test-flight of my new diy Octo alst night.
