Now...as far as mounting the ducts themselves to the main wing pylons of the vehicle, I will be using giant scale servos from hitec. In addition, the hitec servos will be mounted within an aluminum servo block that has ball-bearing support on the output shaft. This takes the load OFF of the servo spline itself. All the weight of the duct, motor, esc etc will be carried by the aluminum servo block and bearing.

Here is a picture of what Im talking about.....the duct will be bolted directly to the round aluminum hub thats already pre-drilled. Pretty nifty.

Robot guys use these all the time to isolate the servo itself from the actual mechanical moving pieces.
