140 mm Stroke 11 lb Thrust Light Duty Linear Servo


The L16-R hobby linear actuator is the big brother of our L12-R series and features a larger motor for increased force. These linear servos operate as a direct replacement for standard analog rotary servos. They use the same standard 3 wire connector, ground power and control. Regardless of how you drive your servos, be it with an RC receiver, an Arduino board, or a VEX micro-controller, the L16-R servo will function in place of a regular servo, but with the added benefit of providing linear motion. 

These hobby grade linear actuators are constructed using an anodized aluminum shaft, metal gearbox, steel screw and steel ball bearings. They're built to last and will look good on your models. Comes with a hardware kit for mounting included.

These linear servos are approved by First Tech Challenge and are compatible with their allowed servo controllers.

NOTE: The L16-R is not plug and play with Futaba receivers such as the R6014FS that output 2.7 volts. To use these actuators with such receivers, you will need a Smart Fly Power Expander or Orbit Power Jack to bring the signal level up to 5vdc.
