Pretty much. Which version of the board are you looking at? I don't have the parts lists on this machine, but can get it to you on Monday. Best guess on the cost is around $20.

Otaku, I think what you've described is what I'm looking for. However, the prop won't be on a timer and instead will be triggered by one of my LOR controllers. Would this change the set up at all?

Good question - I don't know how LOR triggers work. What is needed to trigger the board is a simple relay or other switch closure for about one second. However, that switch needs to be able to handle 12VDC. The board is designed to use its 12VDC source as the power that is used to charge the master RC timer. If LOR has the capability of switching hot contacts (AC or DC) then you should be OK.

We did the head pop-up thing this year with a pneumatic cylinder. We used a 110V solenoid valve plugged into a DMX dimmer box and controlled it with DMX software. It doesn't talk but the effect was good.
