    Giant Puppet

    I've got a 34 ft tall marionette that i designed to pick up circus acts in it's hands. I have to adapt it for RC. The hands, which hold the circus acts will be controlled by high speed live load rated winches. The rest of the puppet, (150 lbs) has to be controlled by some other means. Usually, its directly controlled by hand held lines. For the current gig, that won't be possible.
    I want to use cordless drills, ranging from 28 v (Millwaukee) to 18v (various generic.

    I have to adapt controls for voltage control, forward and reverse. i'm looking for advice or colaberation

    -Voltage regulators that can handle 36 v?

    to see the puppet in action, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqTkZ9m-NMw

    Battlebots, Robot stuff well help you alot, alot of us here are used to using RC scale gear, but those who build battlebots and such commonly work in the range that your looking for.
    there are a couple of forums im trying to think of ill hint you towards, there should be at least a few people here that can help you but we dont get alot of attention here on the forum.
    i see what i can dig up.
    Function over fashion, I dont do shelf queens!
