    Default Remote Control Retired Gunner...crazy ideal?

    Due to my busy schedule, I normally train alone and my dog is now at the stage to be introduced to retired gunners.

    Since time is limited, I was thinking of building a remote control gunner that would retire with a turn of the nob, and then come back to it's original place by turning the nob back. Similar to model airplane or car steering.

    I was thinking using a TT release, and convert the servo but I think it would only be one way after pressing the button. I also need something that would be able to support a white kite on stick.

    How do other people do retired gunners when training alone?

    I thought of this ideal so if my dog could see the gunner and then have it retire when the dog was enroute, before going to retired gun right away.

    I know it's another piece of damn equipment, but if it could save me 5-10 minutes, plus give me more options on training my dog it may be worth it.

    What do you think, are there other options (besides a real person) that would work?

    That's what I thought, but I looked at the website a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't find it. I use BB's so it would be great.

    If you have or anybody has a link that would be perfect.
