Party Popper Machine

I’m thinking of making a machine to set off a Party Popper from a Raspberry Pi (or Arduino?)

Like this guy:

He has even done the laser cutter designs

Has anybody got a mg996r servo motor?

There are some big servos in the space already (coincidentally in those drawers in the stool that you are now so familiar with :smiley: )

They’re not metal geared but still pretty big. I suspect an MG servo is probably overkill, without reading the articles…

However you can get them on Amazon apparently, two for £12 -

Thanks Chris. I will take a look on Tuesday and the servos that we have.

I have design a circuit board for a different project but I’m not sure how to to design a PCB from it. Are you good at KiCad?
