Servo pie Panels

so on a lark I decided to try and make a quick linkage for opening my pie panels tonight. So, with no proper tie rods or whatnot I mcguyvered it up with paper clips 😛
Anyways, it works pretty well, so i’ll probably just go with it since the cost is low. I will need a few more servos though, for the other panels. I just had these 2 and a hitec I had no servo horn for lying around.

the pie panel i showed here works pretty much perfectly, despite the ridiculous amount of play in the hinges, but the other tends to twist and doesn’t always close completely, catching on the edges of the cutout. I think I can make some guides for the hinge to keep it in line, so I’ll give that a shot and see if I can correct it.
