Dave, I am not really sure. I think the feedback servo was causing some eratic signals.

Alex, thanks. There is a spring loaded damper similar to what you describe. It seems okay for now and my time is limited but I would be happy to share the model for further insight and analysis.

Florian, yes I see what youy mean. The worm wheel is plastic and as the rotation is not full, if a few teeth are broken, I could index it to a fresh set. There is a spring loaded piston damper built, in the hope of absorbing shock loads. The shock also has to be transferred through several pivot points before directly bearing on the worm. I don't know if this will stand up but If I ever get to the point of a test run, I will be testing everything until failure.

The testing facility;
