I am looking for some good plans for hanging guy prop.I am open to a electric motor setup or pneumatic I have a large air compressor.I would like it to be able to hang in the tree for 30 days so hopefully it can be weather proof. I am also wanting to control if with a light o Rama controller if possible. Thx for any help

You can certainly use an electric wiper motor as has been done a million times and use Light O Rama. You just need to use a relay. Once you have that wired correctly, you simply plug into the LOR controller.

Of course you then need to create a LOR sequence as to when you want the motor to come on and for how long.

You can also do this with the cylinder version as in the Scaryguys build. The LOR controller would provide power to the Solenoid during your sequence causing the air cylinder to open and close. Same concept as a electrical relay.

Radio Shack would be your best bet for a cheap relay.

Your best bet is a wiper motor. All you need is to just buy a relay at radio shack. You need a 120v relay. The other side of the relay can be 12v, 24v, or other voltage More than likely 12v will do. The relay in this link will do http://www.radioshack.com/12vdc-10a-dpdt-plug-in-relay/2750218.html
You would simply wire this in parallel. Do a google search for pics.
