Anyone know how to make one of these?

Would be super sweet if APS or Angeles had one.

I have an E-Maxx. We could put a couple of ballons on them and try and pop the enemy and saving the hostage :) (saw that on TV).

It can, depends on the driver.

Would not hold steal though.

would be nice. i say we try it out one of these days. moving target at 500yards with wind blowing would be challenging.

We have one at APS - just been too lazy to put it up. Stay tuned for next year you may see it or another that Bob and I are working on.

By the way the cheapest way to make a mover for steel is an old garage door opener.

woohoo! that'll be soooo sweet! how about more steel on the sides? i'll take care of them. it would be so nice to be able to practice hold under shooting at multiple targets.

We have a lot of things in the works for next year now that we've seen what will and won't work so to speak in that limited venue. A few stages will return such as smacking the maiden and the 5 dot drill but we got more stuff in the hopper.

1000 yards possible? :D

Maybe or damn close - I have to watch how close we get to the road - but we are looking at locations and even expanding beyond to the otherside of the right hand berm at the rifle range.

I had an idea for moving balloon targets. Put a remote control car going forward on a circular track made out of rain gutters.. cheap and light. Plus you're not limited by the range of your remote control.
