I am dying to build a FCG but the area I live in gets pretty windy. For "domestic reasons" I can't hang a FCG in the living room windows. I thought about draping off an area of the garage and leaving the door up, but that would require the repositioning of the vehicles plus the associated set up time. It seems to me that by it's very nature a FCG must be as light as possible and operated in a dead calm to give a good effect. Anybody else have experiences, good or bad with an outdoor FCG? Aside from expanding my cemetery with more elaborate tombstones, animating figures is my passion now.

Have you considered a free-standing frame to support the FCG rig? I saw one at Wolfstone's site, along with a minimal how-to. You should be able to put this indoors without drilling any holes (I have the same restrictions LOL).

HMMMMMM. Let's see, which is cheaper, a free-standing frame or a divorce lawyer?? I think my wife really wishes she was a "golf widow" rather than a HW widow.

I thought about the porch but it is very small and the TOT'rs would be standing right underneath when they come to the door. I have the perfect tree about 20 feet from the porch that would hide the mechanism, but I think the slightest breeze would flip the ghost up into the branches. Sure don't want to be screwing with that all night. Afraid I might have to think of another project this year.
