Fillable candy rockets "Ball Darts"

Unread postAuthor: Orpackrat » Fri Nov 02, 2007 4:13 am

I just got a couple of these because they were with the marked down holiday candy. After cutting the fins down a bit, it will slide into 2" SCH 40 PVC Pipe. The candy compartment fits loosely inside but could be eaisily fixed. I like these because they are retively cheap and you can fill the candy compartment with different substances to alter the shot.

I hope to test these in the next day or so when I have the time.

I can't help but to find it amusing what the kinds of sites people find. I can't help but to wonder how you find these. It baffles me almost as much as jsr's almost endless knowledge of weapons. The world certainly is full of mysteries. :roll:

Trying to figure out how to make a SCUBA first stage regulator work for portable charging station. If only that pesky job thing didn't keep eating up all my time...

I have been looking for a nerf rockets for a bit but because of the time of year and where I live, they are hard to find, I would buy on the internet but I don't need them that bad. I like to drop by the local stores for the after holiday sales and see if theres anything good. The little rockets I found under some costumes, they looked about the right size so I got a few. Since their not common in the stores here, I looked for a sight where they would be fairly inexpensive. The site I posted was the cheapest in a quick search. The fins on these rockets are mounted on a threaded cap. That makes in nice since it would be very easy to put the fins on other projectiles.

My goal for these is to use the candy compartment as a mold to make strong yet safe paintball splatter packs for use at our paintball games. It would be a great way to mark a destroyed building with a large splat of paint rather than a nerf laying in front of the building.

We have this crazy candy shop here that has all kinds of candy based projectiles.

Like that tube that has a spring powered pison on it.
You put in a popcorn, pull it back and hurl the popcorn through the room with deadly force!

Or those chocolate suprise eggs with the yellow smaller egg in it. You can squeeze the inneer egg and the other half pops out at mighty speeds!

Ah, I see. I can understand a search like that where you were specifically looking for something along the lines of it. I was simply assuming that you somehow got there looking at candy and saw that they would work really well for cannon purposes.
