Wow I have been waiting for this one! Now what make, What to make?
You may use one of those in addition to the required motor.Are you allowed to use stepper/servo motors in addition to the required (< 75RPM, non-servo/non-stepper motor? Or are they completely forbidden?
I was going to build some kind of caged person, but the image was shown on a television with moving hands that came out of the box. I will post it when I decided to make it because I still want to use it for my haunt.Well, my entry will be kindergarten stuff compared to a lot of the entries I know I will be up against. And I know that beautiful first place prize will not be going home with me. But like most of you who are in my boat (get out of it, BTW, if you aren't going to help paddle) I am just hoping to expand my knowledge and add another prop. It isn't even original, but it will be my first successful shiatsu prop. Been trying to build one for 2 years. But don't tell any one. It's a surprise.
Wow, Joisey... A television? What the hell were you going to build? LOL
We may use one and only one servo in the build or can we use as many as we want as long as we stay within budget?You may use one of those in addition to the required motor.
The required motor has to actually do something, so you can't just put one in there for the hell of it and not make it do something while using a stepper or servo to do something.
As many as you want as long as you don't go over budget.We may use one and only one servo in the build or can we use as many as we want as long as we stay within budget?
There are only 3 things that add no cost, the motor, the power supply and the prop. So if you need to add a PIR, timer, or other circuit its cost will be included in your budget.I read through this thread but couldn't find a reference to whether prop triggers/timers must be included in the cost. An example would be a PIR-triggered timer that keeps the motor going for whatever time period. Some motorized props aren't really effective if they're running constantly. What's the verdict on that?
*confused*My prop is finished. Not great...just finished.

It was my understanding the prop does not figure into the equation. Was I wrong?
