    hey anyone interested in some anamatronic crows?

    i may be making a few soon to see how they go...

    chime in if interested...

    simple lifelike ones... with 2 servos at max... and some red LED's for eyes...

    of course ud need a controller to run the servos...

    like our techFX board using an I2C devantech module can run upto 22 servos for about 80 dollars cost and no code programming using free techFX tools software.. (1 techFX controller and 1 devantech I2C SD21 module)

    so you could have a whole flock of moving crows with eyese from 1 controller!!!

    drop me some feedback... im gonna put together a prototype this weekend and see how it looks...

    thanks!

    cost would be probably about 20 dollars a crow... pretty cheap.

    Definitely interested in learning more... By the way, I always wished my Mom had named me Walt, after the great Walt Disney of course!

    So Walt Allen whats going on... hmmm it could work. lol... SO on the tuesday after Transworld me and 3 of my cast members are flying to Orlando for 2 weeks. People always ask me if im going for vacation (yeah dumb question) and i tell them 1/2 vacation and 1/2 haunted house business. "Oh your visiting a haunted house in orlando" is what i get next and i tell them no, im going to Disney world. Believe it or not you can get a ton of ideas from disney. Not soo much their pretty pretty princes but just how they operate. I love that place!

    I've only been to Disneyland in California Sean, but never to Disneyworld in Florida. I hear I'm in for a treat when I finally make it! Take lots of pictures and feel free to share! :wink:

    hey be sure to hit "skull kingdom" on international drive!! its a nice little year round haunted house...

    i think they are closing it???.... hopefully itll still be open when u go..

    MGM studios is the best in my opinion...
