 +Virtually all existing tiller pilots can be used for their drive motors. ​ I have tested:
 +   * autohelm (various)
 +   * simrad tp22
 +   * navico 1600
 +   * tillermaster
 +Most of these use lead screws, but some use ball screws can move nearly twice as fast with the same force and power consumption making them much more efficient. ​  The disadvantage of ball screws is they can be back-driven allowing them to slip with excessive weather helm.   Using the motor to brake this can cause excessive stress on the drive belts.
