    Magnetic Drop target

    OK this is Awesome!

    As the video shows this is a Bally single Drop Target from the 80s it electrically went up only.
    What I have done is -
    Mount a coil from an old EM motor board on the rear of the unit -
    Mount some Ferris material on the arm of the drop target peg -
    Applied power -
    It is now is able to Auto Drop

    The advantages -
    No additional moving parts
    It didn't cost me much <$1 - two screws, two washers & an old otherwise redundant coil
    It solves a rather clunky design issue

    UPPER MIDDLE BALL DIVERTER

    That's really cool. Looks like it could be a bad ball trap though.

    Quoted from aobrien5:

    It certainly is - it will have a perspex plate above it to stop ball launches, it will also be part of the ball
    search program.
    My thinking, consider it mostly be in the 'down' position , consider it 'up' during the combo timer.
    During modes the outer loops will trigger it to be 'up' just before the ball gets there and 'down' moments later
    based on the timing of a 'successful shot'
    So popping 'up' only for the time the ball is expected to be going past it.

    Are these Classic Bally Drop ledge targets?
    http://pinball.click/ClrDropTarget

    They look like it... Just wondering out loud if the "frosted" clear drops would look better than the white targets especially if you can back light them with some leds and/or control the LED color via the computer.

    Yep they are 80s drops & I totally agree it would look cool

    Wrapping up hoping all had a good weekend, thankyou to all who continue offering encouragement
    on this rather long winded project, it's always it's appreciated.

    These are the two Playfield monitors -
    the smaller of the two is a clone of the Backglass monitor.

    I've ordered a bunch of these " classic Bally " to try out, thanks man.

    Looking at inlaying this stuff into the Playfield just because I can & make it serviceable with my method of construction.

    Your lighting and effects are amazing, but my favorite thing I've seen is the towel spinner. Love the steady updates, still excitedly following!

    First Flips with code and animation, no backing track or mode track as that comes from the main processor.
    It's really hard to video this thing btw but this gives you the idea

    With backing track added

    Without backing track

    I'm glad I noticed you added the YT channel. The innovations have been incredible to watch over the years. I was pretty bummed when you shut this thread down...
