"torque enhancer" versus "capstan" servo mounts

Postby deej » Sun Mar 09, 2014 3:11 am

GRT now offers two types of servo mounts to work with cable driven systems, one they call a "torque enhancer", and one that is called a "capstan".

I want to install two autopilot servos in my flying Glastar, but am not sure which type of mount would be best.

Does anyone have any pictures of the two different servo mounts, preferably installed? I think a picture of each would make things much clearer in my mind.

GRT, these pictures would be a great addition to your website, if possible, to help visual folks like me.

Thank you,

Well, shoot, I thought someone might have some info on this.

I'm all set to order a Mini-X, two servos, and the servo mounts once I figure out which mount to order.

Hi Deej,

The capstan is used to attach to the cables similar to the TT servos on a Glastar. The standard servos use an arm to control. There is also a standard and hi capacity torque servo. The capstan servo is the easier connection to the Glastar. That being said, when I installed my servos the capstan was not an option so I direct mounted. Pictures on the Starnet. You could use a TT mounting plate for the GRT servo with Capstan. I believe they would work
