      quick and dirty… but works..

      skate board, aluminum rail, plywood, fishing line on a spool… I used a 360 servo and rc unit but any motor from a toy car would work..also works if you just push it by hand..

      I Do have some footage, but this is something so ad hock, I thought the idea was more useful than a how to..
      drill a hole in a mini skate board to mount a tripod head, use a motor and spool to pull it along the track, which is mounted to a board……. very easy build… the only tricky piece? my $1.00 mini skateboard (yard sale item, used) has cheapo wheels with plastic bushings… I replaced those with better wheels that had ball bearings in them…

      I will shoot something showing how it works asap…
