    Default Santa and his reindeer

    I had big plans this year of getting this to fly. Perhaps next year but here is my setup of Santa and 9 reindeer (included Rudolph). It is suspended from the house and a light pole. Just some pics of the build. I also replaced the standard 7watt bulbs with 40W equivalent LEDs.

    Looks great Charlie, sorry I probably won't get to see it this year!

    I was actually thinking about your flying santa the other day while I was in Lowes. While looking at their little christmas village that had a flying santa, I thought it might be something that could be re-worked for fullsize. Essentially the santa and reindeer didn't move forward any, but the went up/down in an alternating fashion like a carousel does. So you could mount them in some way and have a motor(s) and cam system to raise lower them a foot or two and give them the look of flying without figuring out how to light them while having cross your court and NOT take out someone's $55k car. Just a thought that popped into my head....

    Can you post some close up pics of the attachment of the reindeers to the clear tubing? Exactly what I want to do....won't get to it this year and still have 4 more reindeer to find :-)

    Thanks...Duane

    I have found a source for this set of santa and reindeer, but it requires me to travel some to get it.
    If anyone else in Central Ohio or the Findlay/Lima area is interested in getting santa or the addon reindeer, PM me.
    The problem with these blowmolds is that shipping can cost more than the item!
