Post questions and info about combustion (flammable vapor) powered launchers here. This includes discussion about fuels, ratios, ignition systems and anything else relevant to launchers powered by igniting things like hairspray or propane.

Dosn't PVC come in 10' lengths? And I sure hope it would be breech-loading[:p]...

Probably would need to build a smaller combustion just to fire the projectile down the 47' barrel [:p]

It’s a little impractical to have that big of a barrel even if it would give me the proper C:B ratio so instead I might use something like a 30‘ barrel, and it will be breech loading lol I don't think I will be taking the barrel off each time. I’m using ABS and it comes in 12' lengths so I just cut them up and hold them together with male and female fittings its a lot easier for storage.
