Hi guys we got these in at work today thought you would like to see. I'm thinking with a lick of paint and some reworking it would be great for an animatronic arm. Best thing is that it comes in a kit so you can make different combos so a possible P1 cannon could be fitted. I got mine free because I made a £500 pound sale today.

The basic setup is a 3 point articulation with full 180 degree the claw is cool, played with...cough...I mean demonstrated one today

i have worked out the the exact same thing, but i don;t wanna pay for it, and also it's not too light, was gonna lengthen the control wires and mount them into a wrist comp

Making mine now. I sorted out the weight problem buy routing an extra battery compartment from a longer wire that will go in the backpack. We sell them for £30.00 which is not to bad when you think of what you can do with it.

Good news. The big bit at the bottom is only for the pivot motor the rest run from just a simple 4 wire setup and it's light as a feather. I'm going to use this for my P1 backpack with a foam cannon for ease of use

Just tested the size on the cannon mount fits like a glove. Going to add magnets to hold the cannon (AVPR style) and rewire the top motor to pivot. :)

I also found a nice guitar stand in a cheapy shop that I used for a Bio stand
