instead of doing all that tricky stuff on your first cannon just put a bike pump valve in the side of ur chamber and use a small bike pump to mix your fuel its alot cheaper and u never havto replace any batteries :lol:

Thats a bit tedious and annoying to do that, plus it requirs you bring a pump. It also doesn't mix as well as a fan.

And if you pump it too high and the spud is tight enough in the barrel that it doesn't move, you have yourself a hybrid...........

Oh and you can't use it to make turbulence in the fuel like you can with a fan. (leave it running when you fire it)

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

It is very easy to mount a camping fan inside a chamber. You just have to be a little bit creative. I mounted one in my combustion launcher, set up to be operated using a remote power source and switch, within 10 minutes of opening the package. Using some steel wire, some insulated copper wire, 4 screws, and 6 nuts, it was very simple.

I still can't see the NET benefit of using a hand held camping fan over a fan for cooling electronic devices. The mounting, compatability, contained blades, compactness, and existing wiring far outweigh the only? benefit of the hand held fan's superior cfm rating.
Just my humble, objective perception of the differences of the tools.

Hence the camping fan :P

Initial setup of a camping fan may be somewhat more tedious, but 10 minutes of work aside, a camping fan's superior ability to move air (at 1/4 of the voltage mind you) far outweighs any benefits the CPU fan may have in setup ease. Whether the overall setup requires more effort can be debated also, as you dont even have to use an external switch or power source (though I do suggest it) in conjunction with the camping fan.
