I've heard of a few people who have built their own 2 tower cable system, and I was hoping to get some more information on it so I could possibly build my own. I remember reading about someone building their own a few years ago and I was wondering if anyone else has done it since then or even considered it. It seems that the build wouldn't cost nearly as much as paying for a new System 2.0 or Rixen lil bro but I am not sure how to go about this project.

It seems fairly simple when you think about it; two towers, connected with cables, add a carrier, a rope, a handle, and a controller and you're golden? But I'm sure it is much more difficult than that. If anyone has any information or ideas on how to do this, it would be much appreciated. What motor would I need to buy? What gears or gear box would I use? What would I use for a controller? And would I need some sort of a computer system controlling it?
