Vcontrol or other radio.

Think you can assign channels to spare ports in software for other radio.

Vcontrol probably have to use macro cells.

With VBC http://www.vstabi.info/en/node/2173

With standard TX you simply use one of the AUX channels.

Any link to the operation of it? Cannot see that it will be different to a servo, don't understand what you mean by stay on until target....

From this link it functions like a normal retract servo, needs a simple switch to operate, so any of the solutions in the already linked videos for a normal retract servo will work.

OK let us know. Maybe check the "endpoints" of the macrocell setting for the channel you are using. This is better explained here
Celltype Channel (13 min 44 sec)


http://www.vstabi.info/en/node/2171 Explains it with more examples.

Looks to me like you're not using a signal wire to control servo position, but instead just +/- and -/+ to control motor direction.

In this case I think you will need a relay that is operated by pwm...something like this maybe?
