If you make a title in all CAPS, then you run the risk of me changing it to what I feel like.

There's enough information on this website to let you make something which will drop your "friends"' jaw, but we don't like to spoonfeed - this site has a search feature - don't be afraid to use it ;)

As a hint, you can looking in the How-to Forumfor how to build cannons. To assist you, try looking at this thread or this video fo how to build the cannon. It is also advised that you build a Propane meter as seen hereand here.

An advanced combustion launcher (metered propane, fan, multiple ignition points, BV venting) will likely, as JSR put it, drop your friends' collective jaw. As for how to make one, I search for the Advanced Combustion How-To by Pete Zaria, or just check out the stickies on how to make propane meters, and take a look at the combustions in the showcase.

It is his first post, it's when he does it twice, (or 6 times *cough*Pilgor*cough*) that I get frustrated. We were all newbies at some point, and a lot of us were n00bs in the beginning.

But I agree with speedycicada on the attack of the noobs lately. I was about to leave a scathing comment on some idiot's post about whether it would work if he made an 80" combustion (complete with the customary lack of grammar, spelling, general coherence, and in all likelihood any thought at all), but the site crapped out again. Then I went and and won 10 bucks, and came back happy :D

This is what happens when you don't abide to the rules.

Hopefully you now know to always do some research before posting.

Read the above posts and follow their suggestions. When you know what you are doing, come back once you have a plan that is coherent and if you have any questions, make sure you have searched for the answer first, before asking us.
