I’m looking to start purchasing parts to complete some animatronic wings for a cosplay but was hoping to get some advice on the proper motors and electronics to purchase. I’d be purchasing four Actobotic Linear Actuators (was also considering Actuonix Light Duty Actuators as well) for spreading open and closing the wings. I’ll also be getting two Power Window Motors for flapping of the wings.
The Actobotic Linear Actuators showcase a GoBilda 5202 series motor but I’m unsure of whether I would need such a powerful planetary gear motor over a spur gear motor for almost half the cost? What kind of motor controller should I consider if cost efficiency is a concern? I’m also not sure of what kind of batteries to get? Would I be able to power the linear actuators and power window motors off the same batteries/motor controllers?
