Judging by viewership alone, I think they know that my cannon is more powerful. :lol:

pwnd :(


Up to 19 subscribers now, yuss :D
Still means 230 of my other subscribers haven't followed over yet...

In actual MiniBoy news, am hoping to try and get a piezo buzzer to test sometime next week. I doubt it would be the method I go with but it's worth a try.

Edit: Just quietly, made $1.30 from 32 pages views yesterday on my MrCrowley45 channel :D

If I want to stand back and watch something become annihilated, I'll just use [redacted], not some cannon that needs to be towed around with a trailer. :lol:

Legitimate argument point. If I want to put a hole in something i could just use a 3lb SC too lol. Ones a bit louder and more illegal though, so it's fun to have legal fun sometimes...


MrC - are you using a 10X mixture to get the stat's in your video? What is your chamber pressure and theoretical "bursting" pressure?

It would be fun to perform a similar test with a golf ball - we may try it on a lake by me thats over 10mi long... we'd have to go out in the very early morning, and would hopefully be able to track the distance via a google earth app on a phone, and in the pocket of someone on a jet ski lol. There's just so much risk involved with shooting something farther than you can easily see... (as I'm sure you've discussed to death in this thread lol...)
