Alright! He finally got some videos up and running! Most videos were taken on the Bogue Chitto, though some were in his backyard.

<a HREF="http://view.break.com/306475">Video #1</A>

NOTE: videos are on Break.com.

Sorry Karpa, but you're just too lazy.

Sorry to kick up this thread again, but we did some more shooting I thought I'd post, (we were making a sign, believe it or not). The wood in the video is 3/4" birch plywood, from 40 yards away.

Looking at this idea...

Some rich guy should buy like 3 armored hummers and mount GB cannons on top of each of them, and have Tank Wars. I would pay big money to see that. OR make a "cockpit" out of blast glass on your ATV and get your buddies do the same, and have fun.

That would be sweet. And if you're already rich enough to do that, you might as well use high pressure semi auto piston valves and run them on unregulated helium, so that they shoot 120rpm at 2000fps. Now that's what I call entertainment.

Why not put the cannon controls on the handle bar with Velcro? And maybe add a three way solenoid for the injection of the propane to make a super fast reloading cannon..... :twisted:

I noticed in the video, that the cannon was pointed at a downwards angle..

An idea may be to mount a one way pneumatic cylinder($10-$15 for a half decent one on ebay) below the gun and control it using two sprinkler valves. THAT would pretty pretty gangster.

Why not use electronic servo activation? IE, a servo pulls the blowgun. :twisted:

EDIT: Woops, its a combustion.... Oh well, point still stands...

HaiThar, don't you remember the other thread? That is exactly what we were going to do with this cannon. We were going to make a wooden frame and attach a 3/4" pneumatic cylinder for elevation control. Sadly, he didn't want to.

Ammosmoke, that would be necessary, because he switches the ignition coil to the cannon from the control panel.

I do have to say after watching the last video that this is one amazing combustion. I do have a question, however. I could here where the propane was injected, then could hear what sounded like some sort of grinding noise. What was that grinding noise?
