Default Best Robo

Without upsetting anyone I would like to know which brands of wind operated and also battery operated wind/robo duck have proven to be the best. I know people have strong feelings about this topic and I've avoided these decoys just as I have avoided the refuge below my house. Well I've given in on both and the robo is a must have for afternoon hunts at the refuge. I tried to draw fifteen times this year and never got drawn for a morning hunt, so I'm not sure why I'm even bothering, but i'd like any or all of your opinions on the best brands. I like the the concept of a variable runtime of say one to ten seconds after pushing the remote and then automatically shutting off. Is there such a beast? I'd also like one with a major reach advantage regarding the remote. As far as the wind duck I'd just like to have one that runs smooth with little wind. Basically a well designed and balanced, friction free machine.

Thanks

I use a three year old Flambeau. It's still kickin but I have spent much time messing with it. I hooked up my custom wired remote on it for 17$. I am too cheap to buy a new one but if I did I would buy a Lucky Duck or a Mojo Mallard. I know and hunt with a lot of people who use them. You can set them up with a wireless remote for an additional 50$ I think. I saw a deal a little while back for Baby Mojo's (just a small version of Mojo) for like 30$!!.

I have several and my favorite is Mojo with a remote. The Mojo junior is not too small and would be easier to transport.

I USE THE BABY MOJO WITH A TIMER IN IT THAT STARTS AND STOPS THE WINGS INTERMITANTLY SO I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT.

Thanks for the feedback. I've been eyeing that floating Mojo for some time. It would seem that the floater with a remote would be lethal. We can't even use a Robo until the middle of December so I guess I'll consider a Winduck for the early season. I wish I had Deadstick's hunting area, then I wouldn't even need a Mojo. Thanks for the picture.
