    I was thinking about claw machines tonight And I was thinking about making one with Rc parts like a couple servos to move the claw back and forth or 2 rc moters not sure how that would work anyways and then a motor for the claw to go down then another for it to close and go up does anyone have any thoughts on this I could probably design how to make it but Dont have the rc parts to try tell me what you think thanks.

    What you would need are 2 linear actuators (basically an electric motor and a spindle) for X and Z movement, a winch of some sort to lower and raise the claw, and depending on how you want to operate the claw either a servo or some clever way with a spring to keep the claw open while lowering and closing while lifting the claw.

    It's not difficult, but does need a bit of tweaking.
