    Default Pop-up Lunger mech plan

    Anyone ever build the mech for a pop-up lunger prop ? I'm looking for specifics dimensions to build myself a mech like this:

    I want to build a prop that would drop from the ceiling so i think that would be a good mech for it but i cant find much info on this...

    If you go onto YouTube and search articulating wings. I know in there are a few that have the dimensions for the construction but as for the actuator I am not sure what you would need . Hope that helps

    Here is one I built a few years ago. The only thing I can envision is the whole mechanism falling from the ceiling if not very securely mounted. If the movement is somewhat fast/violent you will have the whole thing moving around if not secured.

    The one I built was based on the design from Pandemic Haunt Productions. I changed some of the dimensions to suit my needs, but the basic idea and layout was there
    and that is what I used. Their website seems to be gone, not sure if they are still in business. If you want to pm me and I might be able to send you the plans. I did change things in the construction of it due to the fact that I didn't / don't like the idea of a bolt going through a hole in a square tube for a pivot. I used oilite bushings and shoulder bolts at all of the pivot points. It may be overkill ,but it works a lot better and smother that some of the others I've seen. And will last longer.
