    Hello, I hope this is the correct forum section.

    I am near to modify my winch gear for obtain the vertical lift.
    I was looking for a few days this image posted by eaorobbie:
    vertical lift by Winch.png

    I don't understand fully the operation of this, precisely I don't understand how the brackets can do the opening movement when the gear is turning. Would be perfect to see an animation about to understand well.

    I was looking this image too (always taken from eaorobbie):

    This image is nearest of what I was thinking about a vertical lift using winch motors. But in this image too I don't understand the part that I highlighted (Perhaps these additional brackets are used to rotate the pot without using the RC hely gear?)

    Ok, this is what I was thinking for the vertical lift:

    Simply that. Is enough?
    I think that more the bracket length is, more height I can obtain for my platform but my motor must to give more power too.
    What do you think about?
    What is the better solution for obtain a good mix between ease of construction and lift performance?
