Hello everyone, Deathtouch referred me to this forum and I lurked around for a few days and saw that it contained a lot of people with similar passions in Halloween fun. I wanted to take part in all the great discussions and learn from people who have been there and done that and maybe put some of my knowledge in to help others too.

From what I have seen so far I realized I should have started my projects for this year a long time ago. I already have ideas I have seen on this board that will last me several years of project building.

Cant wait to dig in.

This thread created by Deathtouch shows a project I did last year.

Hey HN. I am still at Ironstock. Welcome to Hauntforum.com. You will have to show me how you did the rat. That thing is awesome.

Welcome!

I hope others like you can start some "how-to" threads (for someone like me who has a double masters in education, and is slowly learning with difficulty how to do a simple servo.) The dying to know how to do electronic animated props is eating me alive!

Welcome!

I will start a thread on this particular project with more detailed pictures. Give me a few days to get my act together. My work for some reason seems to want me there way too much lately.

Real quick though, the rat uses radio controlled servos and needs no programing. Its like playing with a store bought toy radio control car. The servos are plugged into a receiver and the motions you get out of them depend on how you set up the mechanical linkages.

I want to learn about controlling them with programs that have no human intervention. In that arena I have very limited knowledge.

You should check out Zombies how-to, also the Deer-head thread. These are a good place to start, along with links to relevant sites to get you started. Basicly, you want a circuit to control the servo pulses, like your reciever does now, like a servo control board. You also want something to control that circuit, and there are a number of ways to accomplish that, some use software from PC via VSA, others, like Zombie control thier Servo boards via a Basic stamp setup like Prop-1.
As always, we are here to help answer any questions, either in the Props forums, private masseging, or chat.
