Hello everyone

Here is my W.I.P. animatronics cannon design. I’m using the arduino duemilanove microcontroller as it’s the easiest to learn because it’s open source. I’ve set it up to use the Wii nun chuck for pan/tilt control with full use of the joystick as well as the accelerometer, laser on/off, led firing with use of the z and c buttons. I still have loads of programming to do as it progresses. I don’t have a video yet but it will be coming soon. I got the midsection of the arm machined out of solid aircraft aluminum and I really like how it turned out. I still have to paint it as well as the servo parts. Fun fun painting will be the last thing to do. :)

Here are some pics for your enjoyment

Very cool! It looks like you're using the servocity DDT500 tilt for the bottom of the arm and the SPT-100 pan/tilt with HS322 servos for the top. What does your cannon weigh? What servo are you using on the bottom tilt mech?

Thanks Jerome

I'm using the HS-985MG for the bottom tilt mech and my cannon is very low in weight. the SPT100 with the HS322HD servos have no problem at all moving it. Here is a list of some other parts that I will be using

Basic Micro R / C Bit Switch to control the lasers and the led so that i may use a separate power source

And there will be more parts to come lol
