    Default Replacement motors for wireframe deers

    The moving wireframe deers that I have had for many years no longer move thanks to a bad motor. Does anyone know of a site for replacement motors? I have found links on other sites that no longer exist.

    Are there any part numbers on the motor to go off of?

    I looked a bit and found this one.

    Al -

    I've seen them at Hobby Lobby in Asheboro, which I think would mean they could be ordered online. It's probably the wrong time of the year to catch them in the store.

    Sam's link above should also work, although I have no experience with the place.

    Thanks. I thought about putting a stepper-motor into them and using a ServoDog to make them move.

    Well shooting it wasn't so bad but dressing it and leaving it in my front yard was a little much.

    I left the hide so you could make your deers look more life like. I kept the antlers. Sorry

    Skycraft, sir. They've got piles of different little motors. Great prices, too!
    I might be inclined to grab one next month when I'm back in FL - for a nominal delivery fee. ;D
