Provided By WD6CMU - <a href=""></a>

Any common tire inflator compressor will work to power the Trident. I use a Bon-Aire 12v compressor I bought at Costco, it has a built-in digital gauge that lets you set the shut-off pressure, which lessens the risk of accidental over-inflation. A fair-sized battery pack is needed to run the compressor, a 1300mah pack only yielded two launches at higher pressures, plus a bit of a third, so figure on at least 500mah of battery capacity for each launch.

Wouldn't it be easier to have one long PVC chamber below the barrel, and safer?

But lighter? I think not...

its also cheaper, they make instant chambers without reducers

But wouldn't the three chambers restrict airflow?
Just don't drop it.
