Now make him a little bigger, put him in the center of the yard and you have a very cool halloween display.

Don't forget to go to the "How he was made" video.

Great Job.
I have been a fan of the movie since it was released.

Awesome!!! Outstanding! This convinced me to move learning about how to use servo's to the top of my to do list for 2014.

From what I can tell that Audrey is about 3 feet tall. Can you see making one that's 6 or 8 feet? That's going to require some serious welding and high power servos but it would be lots of fun.

I think it could also be done with PVC. That would keep the weight down (as would counter-weights), to help the servos.

I know the saying "A picture is worth a thousand words" - but a few words would be good too! lol...

Pretty cool though - the 'snarl' really gives it life. He must have some decent servos driving that thing though as some of the components look relatively heavy. Whew - about $1200 - wow... nice prop though...

you need to follow the arduino using the rf24 transmitter and program the arduion to run the servos. Then the Vixen software can control it.
