When I looked through this thread, I didn't see any pics on where you connected the power trim to the motor. Where did you connect the power trim to the motor?

I've made a power tilt, for my EP1 ,but I went a whole different way about it. I used a arm, fitted to the hinged motor mount, and operated by a small gearbox/motor assembly, pulling on a fine wire rope( fishing tracer line) manually operated from a simple switch. I have thought about radio controling it, but done nothing on that front so far.
Ive tried to upload the video of the tilt in action, but cant get it to upload here.

You need to have a Youtube account. Then upload to YT and paste the URL in your thread.

I'm only aware of Youtube and Vimeo working as a paste, here in a thread.
