A positioner (20) for a disk drive (10) that includes a magnet assembly (52), a conductor assembly (54), and a control system (22) is provided herein. The magnet assembly (52) includes a pair of magnet arrays (56A) (56B) and a pair of spaced apart flux return plates (75A) (75B). The conductor assembly (54) includes at least a first coil array (80) and a second coil array (82) that are substantially co-planar. The control system (22) directs current to electrically excite the coil arrays (80) (82) to maintain a data transducer (50) on a target track (32) of a storage disk (28).
