btw. witch of the printed switch heads do you prefer?
I like the asymmetrical as well.

Although I would like to know its overall length, it seems long but just another guy's opinion... maybe a coin for perspective.

It about 1,75in long. And you are probably right, may be a bit large. It feels good in the hand. I will probably wait until I have a panel to decide on the final dimension.

I wonder if anyone has taken the method used for some car window motors. On Toyota's the window motor shuts off when the running amperage goes up,IE when the window gets to the end of it's travel, in that instant the amperage jumps. The switch has a sensor that sees that increase and cuts the power.

Not sure this would this would work as good here. The drag and therefore the work the motor has to do increases with the angle of flaps deployed. In any case this would only be useful for full up and full down.

In this case the motor has an internal stop so it doesn't use any power once it hits that stop.
