Finally, here is my Blackbeard 3-axis prop in action. This thing has taken about a bazilion hours to finish but I think it has turned out really nice. My thanks to many of you whose ideas inspired me and showed me how to make it look the way I wanted. The crypt is a simple plywood box covered with stryo. A linear actuator is used to lift the head up and a servo is attached to the hand that lifts the lid. The entire thing is controlled by VSA. Hope you like it.
