On another thread I mentioned that I would start a new post with homemade winger information, so here it is.
First and foremost, Kwicklabs and other RTF members deserve the credit for the winger and electronics design. I just took their already established ideas and added what I thought were a few good modifications. Here are a few pictures and a general description of the ones I put together.
The back legs are 42", front legs are 48", the support leg is 30", the top is 18" square, and the base is 22" across.
A couple pictures show how I made bushings instead of rotating cylinders for the hinges. The bushings were made from 3/4" straight fittings cut in half, which fit over 3/4" pipe but inside the 1" T fittings. All of the PVC pipe is 3/4".
There are two pictures of the electronics boxes. The picture of the outside of the box shows a siren on the top, an on/off switch on the front, and a trailer connector on the side. The six channel transmitter is laying in front of box. The picture of the inside of the box shows the two channel receiver, a 12 volt rechargeable battery, and the wires that connect everything.
The primer assembly was made from the design on Kwicklabs website except I zip tied the rubber bands behind the 1/4" to 1/8" fitting so that I did not have to unhook them every time I reloaded. I also located the primer assembly on the base instead of one of the legs. The assembly is shown in a couple pictures.
The picture of the base shows the door lock actuator and the bow release system as well as another bushing system which allowed me to glue everything together instead of having loose joints held together with zip ties. The bushing system also allowed me to add short legs to get the release system up out of the grass.
The transmitter and receivers were ordered from Cary-mart, the batteries were ordered from Battery Shark, the sirens, switches, and wire were purchased at Radio Shack, the pipe, fittings, and hardware were purchased at Menards, the bow releases and door lock actuators were purchased from e-Bay, and the pouch, pulleys, and tubing came in a kit from Dogs Afield.
If you need more detail, let me know.
