Using servo for heat valve control

Recommended Posts

I have a full scale airplane that I am finishing and it uses a small HVAC butterfly valve to control the hot air coming in to the cabin. This could easily be controlled with one of my RC servos. I found some plans for a voltage regulator 12-5vdc. I thought a RC Servo tester with a POT on it would be perfect to open and close the valve.

This would mount in my center console much like a temp control in a car.

I would rather buy one, but do not know where to look and wonder if some of the more fragile RC testers would hold up?
