Bruce,
They are programmable IF you use their boards, sort of. If your Tx can handle it, the actuators will perform EVERY action a standard servo can do.
'Pipe', I only listed the L12's for reference. Also why I put the PDF spec sheet file up to show the actuators capabilities. The downside of the Firgelli's is their size as compared to the LADO actuators. I spent way to many hours trying to find a replica of their actuators on the web with no luck.
Assuming I read the specs correctly,the L12-50 will generate around 17 Newtons/3.8lbs of force @ 300ma for my Hawker. But I'd have to agree with PIPE to use the L16's because your weight and possible side loads.

Best of luck with the surgery Bruce. I will be interested in your recovery as I too will be going through the same procedure at some point. In fact I need to have both of my shoulders replaced but I am putting it off as long as humanly possible!

Chad they say it's not a bad recovery but I'll let you know; don't think I would want to two and def. not at the same time.

If your in pain I do recommend the cortisone shots into the joint; I had one yesterday pain is greatly reduced today; but this is only a temp. fix

I've made up mind and I'm going forward just after the first of the new year.

Unfortunately the Cortisone quit working for me quite some time ago. The first few times it worked really well but not so much after that. At this point nothing helps other than the narcotic pain medications. I had both my knees replaced a couple of years ago and did them both at the same time. Worked great for knees but I don't think it will work for shoulders. I would be pretty helpless without any functional arms! I don't look forward to the surgery nor the recovery process but if the results are as good as with my knees then it will certainly be worth it. I wish you the very best with your procedure Bruce and when it's all done you should be in good shape for all the sanding you need to do on your projects! Sanding can be tough on bad shoulders for sure.

Thanks Chad....That's what I thought w/ cortisone shots; so I'll get it done 1st of the new year insurance permitting that is, good luck w/ your shoulders.
And yes after building the canoe w/ all of that sanding it was time to do something about this pain.
