Hi all,

I've just downloaded the first DVD and support material on a new Animatronics tutorial being sold. Found this on Haunt Forum.

Halloween2go Animatronic

$20 for the DVD or $15 in download form. The videos are OK but the accompanying material is well worth the money.

Worth a look.

Good purchase

I found this reference over the weekend, bought it as a download for $15. The video and documentation go together, walking you through the creation of an electronic animatronic.

Overall, the whole package was a good purchase. Wrote a review on my blog too.

Will be picking up volume 2 soon.

I bought volumes 1 and 2 about a year and a half ago. I thought they were an excellent source of information. Dave (the author) was very helpful and responsive to e-mails as well. I can highly recommend them to anyone interested in stepping up his Halloween display. I was even able to use the info on 555 timers to build a project for a friend. Check it out on my site: http://www.brianredmond.net/electronics.php

I am looking at buying these dvds. I would like to start making and programing my own animatronics. Do any of you have any video or pics of things you have made with these dvds?

I haven't made anything specifically from the videos yet, but, having built some other electronics projects and such, the videos are an excellent source of info for electronics, pneumatics, silicone molding, etc.

I've got the first 3 videos and I've gotten a lot out of them. I used his 3 axis design as shown in my random 3 axis controller -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwO61nplMDk
Thank You !! I love that you used wood instead of metal. I was wondering about that part. Yep and now the hubby is all for it. He was a little worried about trying to cut metal for me. (all the tools ya know) now he is gun-ho!! LOL..
