THE ANIMATOR is a waterfowl motion decoy conversion kit that brings your spinning-winged decoys to life. It's a unique product that mimics the natural movement, and SOUND, of ducks making your decoy spread more realistic and effective. The kit is comprised of a DECOY SPECIFIC camshaft, two interconnecting carbon fiber rods and an adjustable splash plate so the plate meets the waterline regardless of how deep the water is. Similar to a mallard call, if you take the time to learn how to use The Animator with your decoy you will see the birds finish in your spread like never before. Also, like a mallard call, if you do not learn how to properly use it- you will 'blow it like a kazoo'- take the time to practice and contact us if you have issues.

There are instructional videos available online, and in store, to help you on your journey of using The Animator to attract waterfowl with water SOUND. Happy Hunting!

See below for all Fitments BE SURE TO READ CAREFULLY and call us with any questions you may have.

LUCKY DUCK™

There are many types of Lucky Duck™ spinning wing decoys. The good news is almost all of them have the same connection from the motor to the wing.

Our Animator fits the Lucky Duck™ HD & HDI, the waterproof HD & HDI, the Lucky Duck™ Junior, all Lucky Duck™ smaller species including the teal, dove and others.

• The motor shaft looks like a black thimble. The motor has the 'female' end of the connection. This opening is roughly 0.5 inches. • The wing shaft fits INTO the black thimble connection on the motor. The wing connection has a small silver magnet on the tip of the 'male' connection. This connection is also roughly 0.5 inches.

• This 'black thimble' connection is the most common of the lucky duck connections. This covers around 95% of all lucky duck decoys.

There is one decoy made by Lucky Duck™ that is completely different, and will not work for this Animator. The connection is a 0.75 inch silver magnet on the motor shaft and a 0.75 inch black 'thimble' connection on the WING. This connection is exactly opposite of the previously mentioned connection and covers only 5% of all lucky duck decoys. Our Animator will not work on this connection.

• If you are not sure which connection you have, please call us right away. We will help you find the right Animator for your decoy.

Using AA batteries with an Animator attached requires a fully charged set of batteries. We recommend the rechargeable lithium AA batteries available on Amazon or at any large retailer. Beginning your hunt with a full charge will ensure the decoy is running at its full potential.

MOJO™

Mojo™, there are so many versions of the Mojo™ spinning-wing decoy. Each version will have a specific Animator. There are five Mojo™ Animators- the MM, KM, BB, MS and ME Animators. So, let's break it down.

1) Mojo™ Elite Series - There are three Elite Series versions. (KM, ME, and MS)

(KM) ELITE SERIES KING MALLARD - This decoy uses the Animators for Mojo™ King Mallard Decoys. This series is currently available in only a drake mallard. This decoy has a large lithium battery that enters through the belly. The drake King Mallard has a shiny green head and a round decoy rod. This motor connection is 0.5 inches wide. This decoy uses the Animator for Mojo™ King Mallard.

(ME) ELITE SERIES STANDARD - These decoys use the Animators for Mojo™ Elite Series Decoys. This series is the most popular. All of these decoys use four AA batteries that enter through a small battery pack in the belly. These decoys are covered by the Elite Series standard: Pintail, Redhead, Bluebill, Gadwall and Woody. All of these decoys use the Animators for Mojo™ Elite Series. Using AA batteries with an Animator attached requires a fully charged set of batteries. We recommend the rechargeable lithium AA batteries available on Amazon or at any large retailer. Beginning your hunt with a full charge will ensure the decoy is running at its full potential.

(MS) ELITE SERIES MID-SIZED - These decoys use the Animators for Mojo™ Mid-Sized Decoys. This series has only two models, the Bluewing and Green-Winged Teal. The newer models, the elite series bluewing and Green-winged teal, has a much shorter wing connection around 0.5 inch in length. The elite series teal also has beautifully detailed body paint and detailed wings; This Elite Series Teal will use the Animator for Mojo™ Mid-Sized Decoys. Using AA batteries with an Animator attached requires a fully charged set of batteries. We recommend the rechargeable lithium AA batteries available on Amazon or at any large retailer. Beginning your hunt with a full charge will ensure the decoy is running at its full potential.

It is IMPORTANT to note that Mojo™ has two Green-Winged Teal. One is much older, has flat green wings with one-inch long wing connections. The Animator for Mojo™ Mid-Sized Decoys will not fit the older version teal. Look below for details on the BB Animator. The Animators for Mojo™ Baby will fit onto the older version of the Mojo™ Teal.

2) Mojo™ Mini - These decoys will also use the Animators for Mojo™ Elite Series (ME).
There are three main mini-version decoys. The hen and drake mini-mallards. These normally come in a two pack, but they can be sold separately also. These decoys have four AA batteries in a small battery pack that enters in the belly. Another decoy in the mini-series is the Spoonzilla™. This decoy also has a four AA battery pack that enters in the belly. All three of these decoys will use the Animators for Mojo™ Elite Series Decoys. Using AA batteries with an Animator attached requires a fully charged set of batteries. We recommend the rechargeable lithium AA batteries available on Amazon or at any large retailer. Beginning your hunt with a full charge will ensure the decoy is running at its full potential.

3) Mojo™ Baby - These decoys will use the Animators for Mojo™ Baby (BB)
This is probably the most popular spinning-wing decoy in existence. The Baby Mojo is a very simple decoy. Beige in color and comes in hen and drake mallard versions. There is a hatch on the back that lifts upwards to insert the large 6-volt battery pack. This Baby Mojo™ Animator (BB) is also designed to retrofit onto the older version teal. This older version teal has plain green wings and a wing connection that is one inch in length. Both of these decoys will use the Animators for Baby Mojo™.

4) Mojo™ Mallard - Aluminum Series The newest version of the Mojo™ spinning-wing decoys.

The heavy aluminum wings demand the newest version of the Animator for Mojo™ Decoys; THE MAGNUM MALLARD (MM) Animator. This decoy was released in 2023 and should not be confused with the original Mojo™ decoy that uses set screws to hold the wings in place. This decoy will use the Animators for Mojo™ Aluminum Decoys.

AVIAN X™

The Avian X™ Powerflight is the only spinning wing decoy that Avian X™ currently offers. This decoy will use the Animators for Avian X™ Decoys.

DECOY DANCER
