What're your launch platforms, if you've not modded your Titans? I'm curious as to what the 'interface' needs to be - 1/2" PVC coupler, 3/4" barrel, etc. At this point, the price-per-unit would be the only thing that could break the deal, otherwise I'm in.

No, in fact the Titan would require a modified barrel, as these missiles are designed to be used with the Nat-Geo, Roto-Rocket, Estes Air Rocket, and Iron Man Rocket blasters in mostly stock form. The others were just large volume blasters that would also be capable of launching them. I suspect that Lazer Tag Master Blasters, PulseStrikes, and possibly plugged Big Blasts will also be options with the correct barrel.

Having rarely seen any of the above blasters, I'm still wondering what pipeage the missile needs...

Send me a crate of these puppies. I'll shoot SonReese with one for you, for science. :)

And you shall continue to do so until I deem otherwise.

That seems like one of the best possible outcomes.

From the sounds of it, you're still in the testing phase. If there's some issues you need to figure out/field test, I'm sure those of us with area wars in the near future could volunteer (Columbus, OH war at the end of March for me). Not sure if shipping samples or sending instructions would be easier (since it's your thing to sell, the latter isn't as favorable. Not like I care; I'm not in the position to sell anything as is, with me trying to get things out that are months overdue), but I'm sure a few of us could try.

If you can make it strong enough that my Cobra doesn't blow it to pieces, I'll definitely get at least one.
There is no such thing as overkill. There is only cost efficiency.

Instructions won't be helpful because of the specialized supplies that would need to be sourced. Part of why I am doing this. I don't expect to make a bunch of money off of the project, and it will actually be a pain in the ass to build the jigs and such. I just want to build some awesome rockets and share them with the community.

That's the idea. I'll be doing pressure tests probably far exceeding what you should attempt with any of these blasters.

Why do you refuse to say what the ID of the rockets are? I mean, it's not like anyone can copy the entire thing from the bore diameter. Are the rockets even built yet?

He's reported ranges, so he must have prototypes at the very least.

I will have to wait to see the final price, but as long a shipping isn't too crazy to Canada I will buy some.

What about Ultimators or XXL Bazookas? My Ultimator missiles are pretty beat up, if these work on them I will buy even more.

Jeez what is it with you guys? I was joking with Taerkitty, mostly because it doesn't really matter. I have stated what blasters they are built for, and that other blasters may be able to fire them but would require modified barrels. The OD of the barrels is 1.00".

I think those are substantially larger inside diameter and would be in the same situation as the Titans.

The more I hear, the more I like. (I was just going to wait until Draconis felt it was time to say - for him to not say, he prolly had a good reason. A jest is as good a reason as any.)

Well at least you aren't dead. Before you do more work on your missile launch thing can you please ship me my SM1.5Ks from literally years ago? I'm not even asking back the blasters I paid you with to mod the Sm1.5k's.

And as far as somewhat being on topic:
Why should anyone trust you with large amounts of capital for this project when you can't even get your act together on shipping one simple package?

That really should be taken to the feedback thread, blue. I've had at least three transactions with Draconis in recent times and was quite happy with each. You have a problem with him, take it to that thread, or take it to the admins.

Trying to wrangle this back on topic: Got an estimate when you will be ready field-testing? We have a war up north first weekend of June if you want to either send some this way, or show up (finally) :)

That's not very on topic. Also, I haven't actually asked anyone for capital yet, have I? I ship packages all the time. Just not yours.

Thanks. I try to get it all done quickly. Sometimes I fail at expediency with big projects. Part of why I don't take commissions anymore.

I did some today with a couple of prototypes. They were kind of as I had expected. The missiles without angled fins are very erratic if there is any wind. The spinning missiles all grouped around 70 feet with maximum (OPRV venting) pressure from a Roto-Rocket. One of them exploded out the front because the pressure was too high for that molded type of tube sleeve. I was hoping using found object liners would be easier to acquire (and net me the candy they were containing) but they don't appear to be strong enough. Also, I just blew the side out of an unlined missile using OPRV pressure, though it was getting about 60 feet until then. I was able to immediately repair it by simply sliding in a tube liner and promptly shot it in to the tree. 80-ish feet away.
I need to build some more units now that I have resigned myself to the more expensive design.
