It Works!!!!!!

Well, It finally moves :o)
I had to cut the total length down 1/2 inch and this leaves me with
6 1/2 inches total lift.
All I need now is a dome plate for the inside and I can get it mounted.
The only thing is that Vex motor is loud, But maybe I can find a replacement
servo oneday.
Once this one is mounted and I know everything is working good,
I'll make another for the Lifeform Scanner.

Thanks Thomas,
I trial fitted it in the dome and it fits.
But I need a inner dome plate to mount it too.
I'm trying to get Jag to do a run of these and then I'm good to go.

Thanks Guys,
Jag is going to see if he can get some dome plates made and then I can mount it in the dome.
After I trial fit everything, I'll get the Periscope complete with lights and painting.
