Hi everyone.
I have a pretty cool project I want to accomplish. I am currently in the process of building a 7 /12-8 foot bumbleeBee from the new movie coming out in Dec 2018.

Coding is definately not my specialty. I can turn on various colors of Neopixels and unfortunatley thats about my limit.

I purchased a Adafruit Metro Express and a Wav Shield V1.1.  Both are currenly assembled.

I have 24 neopixel leds (2 12 count neopixel rings) that I want lit up at (220, 220, 220) that light up Bumblee Bees eyes. (Currently running them on pin 6) They can just power up when the board powers up.

I have 2 tiny servos I want to add that will raise and lower his antennas by pushing a button. Both should be off one push button and move up and down the same range.

Then for the wav shield I plan on using 2 buttons switches.

One button switch is dedicated to the transformers transform sound.  Wav file is titled tform.wav

Second button switch is dedicated to a random wav sound. (Music) Basically plays any wav music file loaded on the SD card randomly.  If anyone is interested in helping me with this I would be extremly greatful. Will be sure to put smiles on lots of kids faces. I attached a photo of the work in progress. (Bumble Bee Helmet)

The servos are going to push the button(s)?

Why do you need two servos to push one button?

The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.
