im in the process of making a new space ship for my level (one you mite all recognise ) and i need the landing gears to be operated by a grab switch but the toogle switch im using at the minute is crap and keeps messing up so has anyone got a better one i could use.

heres a video of the space shuttle so u can the switch and how it messes up

random thought, may not help, but who knows. what if instead of having the one grab switch ( i assume set to off on with tha piston right?)

have two grab switches each hooked to a 3 way switch using wenches, and each set to directional/ inverted (tweeked so there max length allows the witch to be pulled and there min length will pull the switch, then hook the 3 way up to the piston, then (hopfully, not sure though but if your speed settings are high enough and everything it should work) where you grab one switch to deploy landing gear and another to retrieve it... idk if thats what your looking for but its about the only thing i can think of right now.

I don't really understand what problem you have, tried watching the video but it didn't shed any light on it...
But that you say toggle switch make me think that this may be what you are looking for:
