i am looking for a switch with microprocessor to operate a servo motor. to use in a puppet or costume character head ? Answered

The servo would be used to move eyes, eyelids and possibly the mouth. Basically I want to operate a servo without using a radio control unit Space and weight are limited. I am a pro puppetmaker and know this kind of device would be very useful. The motors would be operated by a switch in the puppets mouth. In the case of a costume character I want to put a push switch in the perfromers hand and have them operate the mouth.

Is there a reason that you need a microprocessor or that standard RC components wouldn't work?
