Good question! Does each prop need a different on-time? Will there be an "off" time period between firing prop #5 and starting over with prop #1? My first thought is a Kit 74 or 108 running from your PC. It has 8 relays that can be controlled for different on-times. Pauses can be set between energizing each relay. Once you have the sequence you need, just tell it to loop forever, or until you interrupt the program.

The relays in the Kit 74 or 108 will switch 110 volts for lights, prop activation etc. The programming is easy - you simply enter which relay you want to turn on and for how long. The board runs on a separate low voltage power supply. It does have to connected via a serial cable to your PC while programming and running as it has no way to store and implement the program. Check out www.kitsrus.com and look for Kit 74.
