    May 22, 2007, 12:22 PM - Rangefinder Movement? #1

    Hi all -

    I have seen some fan made videos were a Fett Helmet has a rangefinder that moves from its upward position to the "Find" postion infront of the visor. Anyone know how to rig a bucket up with a motor to do so?

    Thanks!

    Do a search for servo and you'll find a bunch of threads on it. Been looking myself.

    Just out of curiosity, what video did you see?

    Check out these two threads:

    But don't stop there ... I know this issue has been covered multiple times, so there are gonna be some more threads. I'm just giving you a good place to start because I did see the topic get covered in detail there.

    Thanks for the links - I think it was "Wrath of the Mandalorian" it was very well done - albeit a little too cheesy for the amount of gore.

    Hyperdyne used to sell them. It might be one of his setups.

    Here is a youtube video.

    Here is another thread with a lot of info. Search for "servo" to get more.

    And yes, hyperdyne still has them available.
