I do not recommend drill triggers for battle.  However, they
are a quick way to get started.

Yes, you would probably need two servos per trigger -
one for speed and one for the direction switch - unless
you build some unique linkage.

The Tri-Pact controller can be built to use 24V, but I would
substitute 24V relays.  24V relays have higher coil
resistance (360 ohms) than 12V relays (90 ohms).
Activating 12V relays with 24V will fry the coils.
