|Bounty Hunter Rangefinder Up/Down Servo Controller Board
The servo and LED board will fit inside a helmet and allow you to
motorize attachments using a standard off-the-shelf servo*. The board
also controls 2 LEDs, which come on automatically when the servo is the
down position. The board also has 2 inputs to control the up and down
motion of the servo.
The servo board comes standard with 2
pushbuttons: one for commanding the servo to go up, and one for
commanding the servo to move down.

When the board powers up, it selects the “interface” mode via the onboard
slide switch. The 2 inputs on the board respond to high signal, i.e., when a
logic “1” is seen on the pin, the servo responds.
Controlling a Servo with a Radio (RF) kit
The servo board can also be commanded via a small 2-button transmitter (like
a garage door opener) and an accompanying receiver board. With this setup, the
RF receiver board fits in your bounty hunter helmet, and the small keyfob
transmitter can be mounted in a costume gauntlet, glove, etc.
Here is one such solution that is compatible with the servo board:
