Great job on your zombie, DeathTouch! The movement is amazing!

Is yours similar to the radio controlled one that Buorno made a few years ago? I know he based his on my mechanical skeleton.

Fantastic! I've seen a few of these, but none with the head movement added. That TOTALLY makes it! Great job.

Yes but another part was an idea of Mike Mullet from the Chicago Haunt Builders. I don't have his real name because everyone called him Mike Mullet. But I must give him kudos as well.

Next, since I have more channels I am planning on making him talk or growl.

@daddywoofdawg, here's a how-to link that may be helpful: http://www.teambac.com/web_hall/crawler.html

I've got this on my to-do list, so I've done a little research. I'd love to hear other's thoughts on these.

Here are some reasonably-priced motors where there are both right & left versions. Crawling builders, would these work? Is one better than the other?

And according to the how-to's, this is a decent transmitter (for ~$70 on ebay):

Sheesh, I think I asked more stuff than I answered. :)

I really wasn't planning on making a how to since, as you can tell there are others that have made them before. Teambac has a good one that you can follow as fearington house has said.
