Servo allows for rotation and they are programable


Stepper motors, which allow you to put it at certain degrees


Motors are powered, they allow off and on switches


Starting out you need to think about 1. budget 2. how you want it to function 3. research


* There is a book called Making Things Move


You can purchase lego kits that have pulleys and motors. You can use toys - if they do exactly what you want them to do.


Also, you can go to Linked In and ask mathematicians questions about your programming, etc. and they are happy to help.


Wings- you need a firm harness so that they will balance


You can build things purchased from amazon, which is simple than deconstruction.


Also for wings, you can use scrapbooking brads, that can help with cardboard wings, etc.


Rooker switch, powerful controller

People have even used a garage door opener


Layer things so that hides things you may not want people to see.
