Electronics In Nerf?

20 February 2008 - 12:05 AM

I haven't seen this done at all, so I'm assuming there's a good reason for it, but I'm curious anyway.

Is the use of electronic motors to cock and advance a springer a viable option to make a semiautomatic blaster?

If so, is there some kind of equation I can apply to find the gearing and force required to cock a given spring?

I'm fairly interested in giving this a go, so if anyone has any experience with using electric motors in this way, could they please post.

EDIT: Is there an ethical reason behind the rarity as well? I hear the words "It's just not nerf" kicked around a lot when shooting down homemade ideas.
