Halloween - Flying Crank Ghost


Flying Crank Ghost





Pictures do not do this prop justice please look at the video! I get more comments on this prop than any other. The prop is essentially a floating ghost that has movement that is very etherial. 3 different axis of movement are created from a single motor, and are very convincing. I first saw this prop on Doug Fregusons excellent website for Halloween props Phantasmechanics.com. There is a set of detailed instructions on there for contruction and I would be flat out foolish to try and improve on them. I must say that I was very intimidated at first, then a friend of mine built one, after seeing it in motion I decided I had to have it. I got the motor from Hershbach and the materials from Lowes and in a matter of one evening I had it complete, it was very much easier than it looked! If you want the one thing because you can only have one thing, this is the thing to build.
