    Homemade robo duck decoy!

    So before ordering one, i decided to try to make one!
    found everything at the dollar store, a couple of little fan motors (AA), glue gun, some wooden skewers, and a mallard deek which I got from Ian! (thanks). Took me about 5 hours to figure it out and put it together. the fan motor isn't that powerful and for that reason the wings don't spin fast as a mojo but i think they just might spin fast enough to be able to bring a mallard in for me! Will try to take and test it this weekend. If it works then great, i will develop it more and put a powerful motor in, if it doesn't work then no regrets, it was a fun project and cost me under $10.

    that's kewl.
    If nothing els the winduck's look pretty kewl. I have a set of the winduck snows and the wings move really easy. I found that it best to spray them with oil or something for the best results.

    I made the wings out of paper and then laminated. so they are waterproof, and has a bit of shine from the plastic!

    Take some of the orange bedspread and make some dangling orange feet. Just cut it from the side against the wall, Mrs. won't even notice.
