Here’s my garbage can (trash can for the USA folk) prop.
I got a metal garbage can for free off Gumtree a while ago.
A few days before Halloween 2018 I thought of a use for it.
I might grunge it up a bit for next year.
It is simply wedged into the can.
Two edges were cut straight to allow for easy removal.
One of my prop controller boards fire the actuator and plays the audio.
An RF remote receiver is used to trigger the prop.
A DC-DC converter drops the incoming 24V down to 12V.
The grommet stops the metal can cutting through the cable.
drilled in the side to allow the antenna to hang outside.
This increased the remote’s range from 2m to over 15m.
