I have read and looked at lots of posts and videos since last year.
All I have right now are 2 27 inch bicycle rimes I got from a bike store, used, for 5.00 each. bargain.

What is the best motor to get from an online source. I want the package of a good motor and variable speed.

What is the best line? Fish line stretches?

I have a large front yard 150 feet across. What are the variables, will strong motor be enough for that span?

What are the best materials to make the lightweight ghosts?

Is the a shopping list that exists already?

Thanks for the help

For line I use a high test Fire Line brand, its a braided synthetic line that comes in green and black colors. It is strong and has very little stretch to it if any. It does take some boyscout knot tying as it doesnt hold knots too well if they arent perfect. So I like to put a dab of 5 minute epoxy on my knots. I built my test setup last year with a geared motor from an old spirit ISE. You will definetely want spring tensioners, if you use plastic coated clothes line like some have Id recommend steel pulleys from the garage door isle at your home improvement store of choice. Keep the ghosts light and the flight paths obstruction free
