Lol I wish! It looks pretty sweet. A guy posted it on Facebook yesterday. His spread looked awesome. But not worth $1300+

It does looks great, but also like a lot of work. Not sure the payoff is there. How many more birds would you decoy that would have flared with a jerk rig?

Awesome. When things get slow you can race them or play bumper duck.

Happy B-day Brett!

seems weird to me all these motorized units have to go so damn fast. Can't they use slower motors so they don't look like they're hopped up on meth?

This one has two pulleys for speed adjustment and I bet it could be made to go even slower.

I once aspired to make something like that using the crank from an old bicycle

2:00 of video 2 is great. 8 shots at the hovering duck hammer

And for $1300+ i'd like to see videos of 100+ ducks dumping onto the water and trying to hump the decoys, not pairs getting shot at 35 yds high taking a look.

no doubt it will work but I cant see lugging it around/setting it up each morning and don't like to leave decoys out even on pvt. Probably great for some just not for me.

My thoughts too. I did not watch long but if you can't get birds to commit in flooded corn with 1300 in jerk cord you need to take up water polo.

Racing remote control ducks. He's on to a whole new sport! Did anyone see which one is the fastest? I'm asking Santa for one for Christmas. Maybe one for the bathtub.
