Introduction: Nxt 2.0 Ball Gun

Picture of Nxt 2.0 Ball Gun

Hello these are the instructions to a ball gun that I made.
It is a little tricky to make and the balls don't go very far but it is still pretty good.
P.S. You don't need all of a Nxt 2.0 set but you do need the ball launcher that comes with it apart from that all you need are cables, a touch sensor and of course parts.
Please Comment  but more importantly enjoy!

Step 1: Motor and Brick

This is probably the most tricky part.

Step 4: Laucher Part

This is where the actual launcher part is put on.
Make sure that the stick goes into the back of the launcher because this is what pushes the balls out.

Step 5: Launcher Moving Thing
