So here is it...The Mini Combustor 1...very powerfull for its size! very noisy though. It's my fourth combustion cannon, yet my first on the forums.
here are the pics...it isn't ghetto!!! it is pretty clean job i've done here (hehe) and i'm proud of myself for once!!
and voila!! 400 fps with a 5 grams piece of tater, and here is a video!!!!!
kick ass! i think that is the best, loudest, generally awesomest mini(combustion) i have seen.
what did you A: use as the disk, and B: use as the fuel.
i love the lighter integrated handle thing, very erganomic. cant wait for some damage!
<<you have brightened up pocket kitty's day!
PS. your in France, right? or am i crazy...
yeah lol, i'm in france!! So for the disk, it's a piece of transparent paper hoding pocket (is that the way it's called? you know to range it in a sorter)
and the fuel is "Nivea" Deodorant, that uses both butane and propane as a propeller.(until i get some little propane tanks...)
hey it's so cool to have great feedback!! well, for the lighter....i thought that i could maybe keep it like it was and i think i did it. I forced it screw in the 1/2" ==> 3/8" bushing, and used some epoxy to fill the hole and harden the wire end a bit. super glue was then added to harden it much more.
It i fricken loud, i have shot it twice it my room (dry fired) and my ear were ringing for like...5 minutes. outside, it does just a little reverberation in the little woods behind my house. (you can see in the video it was a really great day!!)
