Title: Hobby servo motor linear actuator systems

Abstract: Hobby servo motor linear actuator systems are provided. In certain circumstances, a linear actuator system includes a lead screw attachment mechanism and a lead nut. The lead screw attachment mechanism is configured to be rotatably connected to an output shaft of a hobby servo motor assembly. The lead nut is configured to move linearly along the lead screw attachment mechanism as it is rotated. The system is optionally either open-looped or closed-loop. The lead screw attachment mechanism has an outer surface that can include multiple different types of threads such as, but not limited to, gear teeth and screw threads. The hobby servo motor assembly may include one hobby servo motor or multiple hobby servo motors that work together.
