In response to the idea of reversing the fixed and sprung drums on my proposed system I think you could do this with two servos and sprague overrunning clutches. Each drum would get its own servo and each drum would have a one way clutch. that way when the common alxe shaft was powered in one direction one drum would lock and the other would free wheel.

I haven't actually tried this, but it might be a solution to a more rigid system and I believe would allow the use of less spring tension.
