This is our kicker. It is one of three new air props I built last year. We hung it upside down from a big tree, and had a noose around the ankles (Oddly enough, I didn't get any pictures while it was hanging). It worked like dream, and was really un-nerving!! We just had it on a manual switch last year, but I bought an Animation Maestro II for it, so this year it will be automated. I'll be sure to post some video of it in action after the big day.

Looks good...do you have any dimensions/plans. I really want to start into pneumatics.

Unfortunately, I don't have anything written down. I just used my own legs for dimensions. Stand with your feet together, and measure from the center of one leg, to the center of the other. I believe mine was 6". So, the lower section (feet/ankles) is 6" wide, and the upper section (hips, thighs) is two inches wider, and hinges at the knees. I welded the cylinder mounts last so I could position them where I wanted. If you have any other questions, I'm happy to help out.
