I read somewhere that those super cheap clocks at the dollar stores use a very fine wire in their motors that drive the dial hands. Maybe you could try one. I have a question. I was given some uberlite planes. The actuators were mostly bad. I ordered a couple from Micron out of Austrailia. But I would like to try making my own if these go bad. I have some very small magnets that are quite strong. I used some building brushless motors quite while back. These magnets are less than !/4" long and about 1/16" square. I would really like to find some good intructions to see exactly how actuators are made. I especially would like to make the proportional type. Are there any good directions out there for making actuators? RCNutt
