The POTC looks good but you can get better beak reaction by fine tuning the GAIN pot just a HAIR CW, and I do mean a hair. Just a touch of that pot makes a difference! Take a look at my Pirate Squawker using some of the same clips and you'll see what I mean.Works great!
Keep checking ebay, occasionally there are Squawkers feet listed.Found a Squawker the other day, Ms16 was about to throw it out with some other old toys.
Still working but missing it's feet.
If I can find a way to attach it without the feet I may get one of J-Man's boards.
