So I built my first simple pneumatic prop....we are using a step mat to trigger it, but what can I use to add a delay to the prop so that it can't be retriggered for like 10-30 seconds after being triggered? I know I could use a controller but thought maybe there was a cheaper way?
Its a simple spider prop mounted on a 16" air piston that sits inside a pipe - when triggered it shoots out of the pipe then retracts back inside the pipe.
What I would like for it to do is: Person steps on mat - Spider fully extends then fully retracts, then is unabled to be retriggered for at least 10 seconds so that the same people dont repeatedly step on the mat over and over.
Any help would be great.
