Can you just have a motor to move the flipper?

no absoloutley not your household fan motor which is dc runs at about 3000 rpm so to get something like that to move id recommend at least a good motor at the source you could probabaly get one for about 10$

You'd want a gas-powered ram I think, not a motor (too slow for a "flip")

I suppose theoretically you could use the motor to pressurize a air tank to run the ram.... It would be really slow to repressurize after the first shot, though.

Fire-extinguisher ('dioxide) and an air-ram/piston, that's the way to "flip"-weight in these circumstances.

Definitely a better idea. I was just trying to use the motor for something other than ballast.

To use the 100 rpm motor mount a cam on the motor so that as it turns it flips up a lever that you have run under your opponent.  Every 2/3 second the lever will flip up so it will need a spring to pull it back down again.

A big solenoid would do it and not require time to refill the tank.  I t will have a draw on the batteries though.

You could use the motor to wind down a spring, then release the spring with a catch activated by a solenoid.
