I bought one about a month ago(Green Heron control box) and its just short of amazing. I have it on
a Yaesu 2800 and interfaced with ProLog2K and it is smooth. Green Heron is going to be at Dayton
this and you will enjoy talking to Jeff.
I highly recommend It

I know there is interest out her for a "GOOD" rotor. Some stil like to buildit themselves. After
years I finally got a prop pitch up and going, my HyGain Model 400 ROTOBRAKE was getting a bit
Curious to what antenna(s) you are rotating? Some have rather large antennas to turn so a benchmark
as to what it can handle would be nice. Maybe it could handle 52ft boom 5el 20M yagi that weighs in
at 170lbs plus a 2el 40M Cushcraft? And that is not as big as many.
I remember a HamRadio write up years ago by a VE using worm gear also.
Idea of GREEN HERON control box sounds interesting. I am beginning to look at one now (got some
nice 28VDC 18A regulated supplies for prop pitch use, that became available after I got the M2
control box.) This for prop pitch.
Put me on your interest list.
