Cheap alternative to RC hydraulics?

I want RC hydraulics but one piston alone costs you more than fucking 100 bucks. Which is absolutely insane. And hydraulics are a pain in the ass to work with anyway, so I want to make it manually.

What is the best way to make them? I was thinking maybe mod some syringes with small tubes and an air compressor. So the hydraulics become pneumatics.

Any ideas how to control it? Those RC hydraulic sets are way too expensive.

K.I.S.S.

Can you use an electric linear actuator?
If so, do that.

Tends to be the way, they are high tolerance, precision made devices that need to take a hell of a beating, and because hydraulics tend to be messy, complex systems, not many people use them unless literally nothing else will do the job. Low demand = Smaller production runs = Premium pricing.

I've actually tried this, the rubber cap on the syringe plunger is a pretty tight fit to the tube, meaning you need a fuck load of pressure which tends to blow the lines off the nipple before the plunger actually moves. Hydraulic worked a little better but it was messy as fuck and the tight cap still made life difficult.

Whats your application?
