Gort's New Hybrid

Just build a cannon and want to show it off? Post it in here.

Galfisk linked directly to the board I used above. I would use the one Harmon linked to though.

Thanks DR. I was hoping you'd like it. I did consider using a slip cap. Went with this because I figured a fan would help performance a bit and because the cost was no concern. I got myself a <a href="IV0103077928194191">box of schedule 80 fittings off eBay</a> for under $50. The only extra part I needed was the threaded cap (or a slip cap). I'll make another if this one blows up. I got parts for it so it's no biggie. :p If something is gonna blow, chances are it would be the union, not the thread plug, no?

And yeah, I did have that problem with the leaky threads. I ended up buying some thick 3/4" width teflon tape for the back end and did as you said, and tightened the shit out of it. I put the hex in the vise, put a strap-wrench on the female adapter and went at it.

I can't wait to actually use this thing!

Amazing hybrid. It truly is a lot better than your first (which I though was pretty good). I agree that the metering system looks very nice.

Make sure to retake those pictures, and maybe some videos while your at it :p

I always like a clean looking cannon and that one is a fine piece of work. I like the metering setup a lot, and wireless control too. All we need now is another indian summer so you can get some damage pictures up.

Unless you changed out the radio you didnt... That box uses a wireless setup you got off ebay, you said here that you were using a Allelectronics recever.

RIGHT! I guess I lied on here. I haven't used the wireless part for a while because the remote needs a new battery.

Okay, announcement then: The box shown uses a cicuit off eBay which is actually no longer available so don't ask how to find it. That is the reason I now use the ones off AllElectronics.
