I was wondering if anyone here knew the volume of the Titan air tank. My idea is to use CO2 cartridges to fill up the tank instead of pumping. So, any ideas?

Yep. Wear a bomb suit when you test it. I dearly wish that the search engine could take 3 letters- CO2 would result in more closed topics than some people have darts.
EDIT! Links incoming.

There's more, but you get the idea,

Well CO2 tanks are created so that you can pack a large amount of gas, CO2 because of it's low density, into a small volume. You could manage to get about 3-5 fills with a 32 oz ( correct me if I'm wrong) CO2 cartridge. But you must remember to use a regulator. Also this is nerf so CO2 is not commonly accepted. This sport ( if it is a sport) is played just for pure enjoyment and having fun, not to out compete someone else. If your serious about not wanting to pump use compressed air in a easy to create PVC tank connected to a valve to use to fill the tank. But this idea personally to me is impractical since you are trying to do this with a titan.

The pressure of CO2 can be regulated, just like any gas. Honestly, people overreact about ariguns. You wouldn't need a fucking bomb suit. Eye protection and common sense will get you a long way. At any rate, the problem with CO2 does not arise from high operating pressures but the manner in which CO2 reacts to changes in pressure. A sudden de-pressurization of CO2 will drastically lower the temperature. Doing this over and over will weaken the tank and rubber. This is bad. Don't use CO2.

Thanks for the replies!

The object of my doing this is purely to push what I myself can do. I don't plan to use it in any kind of game, since it wouldn't make it very fun. If I wanted to play paintball I would.

Sounds like compressed air is better then, due to the plastic getting brittle from cold CO2?

People "overreact" because this site is populated with 13 year old kids who, frequently, don't know any better. Go start your own website dedicated to educating 8th graders about safe c02 practices. I'm not interested.

No Pump Titan

Unless you're dead set on using cartridges or whatever, this is probably the fastest you'll fill a titan. I think there might be even smaller electric air pumps out there, but nothing that I've tested personally. I've been keeping an eye out for cheap ones though for whenever I get around to making a new MavTitan.

I am with velveeta avenger on this one and also, you can go to electronic stores like radio shack and by sealed rechargable alkaline 12 volt batteries that are good and fairly small but are around 30 dollars depending on where you get it if i am not mistaken.

Thanks a lot again guys (and gals?) for all the info.

It seems that I will stick with pumping. Now to move onto my next crazy idea that probably won't work out: :rolleyes:

Go for it! I will say it would look cool, functionality be damned.
You originally asked how much air a titan tank holds. In case you still need that number, it's around 350ml.

Or, you could use an HPA paintball tank. I'm also a paintballer, and I used to use a Ninja Paintball 48/3000 tank (48 cubic inches, 3000 PSI). I believe they are around $35-$60. They don't give you the issues that Co2 has. Although, I don't think you would get many fills out of the tank, not enough to justify the price.

Another option that would be safer to operate without a regulator is a pronane tank. I'm not talking about those big ones, of course, but the smaller ones that cost $2-$5. With a airsoft propane adapter (I reccomend the Airsoft Innovations yellow model) which is about $12 (and reuseable, of course) your titan tank will be able to shoot a titan missile about 80 feet, while still mainainting a relatively safer PSI of ~115 (DISCLAIMER: i say relatively because this is safer than using a CO2 tank without a regulator). The titan tank has a built in check valve, so you can patch the other inlet in the back and utilize the check valve as an inlet valve. By the way, this is not speculation, as I use this setup to power an airsoft rocket launcher that fires giga-stefans made out of pool noodles :D .
