  • Actuator power is suddenly off after Blue LED flickering. Then, actuator can work normally when I reboot the power again.
    It is a typical symptom when motor is protected by Overload protection feature. Check out if there are any Overload conditions as below and remove overload condition immeditely.
    - Discrepancy between position command and mechanical limit
    - Too high duty cycle (less than 50% duty cycle is recommended.)
    - Heavier load than rated force
  • It seems that grease is slighty leaked from the housing.
    The grease should be essentially applied to mightyZAP as it consists of various gears. Small amount of grease can be leaked from the housing, but it does not affect to the normal function.
  • Can I use mightZAP for my R/C model planes or car?

  • Can I use mightyZAP in highly humid or serious dust condition?
    mightyZAP has been developped for indoor application and has IP-54 ingress protection rate. However, we do not recommend to use it under high humid, serious dust condition. User needs to make some protection case if actuator needs to be applied under this serious condition.
