Yes, you would modify the stepper such that when the copper element inside the fiberglass tube reached full extention the copper tape would make a connection with the dangling wire.
Uhhh.. but then you wouldn't be able to adjust the element length in the loaded condition. You'd not be able to do all the cool stuff like tuning for environmental effects, swapping 180, etc.
What about vacuum relays and ow loss coils at the feedpoints of the elements? Seems like that would be a fairly simple solution, and you've already got some cabling going to the element for the motor control.
