    John Warren Im thinking It might take two decoaders, one to run the motor for the boom, and another decoader to run a RC airplane servo to swing crane. I thank that's how they did it especially the lights.
    Perhaps some day

    He goes to great lengths to decribe his creations, including sources and programs.
