Well, over the night (10.00 PM to around 1 AM) and some during midday (around 12.00), I made a Knex Minigun (although it is not mini at all, but very large). In case you do not know, a minigun is a large machine gun, having nothing to do with the word "mini".
It uses a lot of pieces and is very cool. There are two handles sticking out from the side and the gun is sturdy enough to hold up to 40 clips on a chain.
Unlike past knex machine guns, the gun does not have its chain in a loop, but it is just fed through by a motor and falls off in the end.
I am working on a tripod/base for it to sit on, but so far all of them have broken down under its weight.
Please post on this slideshow if you want me to post instructions or not.

Pros:

Holds up to 40 rounds.
Is actually pretty light.
Does not use too many exotic pieces.
Fairly simple to build.
The tripod (coming soon) allows the gun to turn 360 degrees and point up and down.

Cons:
If the gun is not on the tripod, the handles will not support its weight when the chain is on, so there is a grip underneath.

 wait a sec if its prety light then how come all you tripods have broken under its weight?
making a knex tripod is harder than it sounds. I wanted it to be able to rotate on an axis, so that support axis broke almost immediately. Of course, the gun is light as in holding it by yourself.
POST!!!!!
a much of ammo :P
indeed!

As said before, it is a submachine gun, not a minigun :). Someone attach a chain to a gatling and put a handle on it rofl, real minigun.
looks okay, a video would be helpful. just so you know, VERY few people have those green motors.
I do, but battery acis everywhere.... one fell apart, only 1 working out of 2 robot sets >.<
RMConstruction, the motor can be repaired. Use a screwdriver to scrape the battery acid off. DO IT WELL. Then get some contact spray, this helps making contact with the battery. Then it might work again!!! I did this with 2 All Terrain Trekkers.
I did, but found thw curcuit board was broked >.<
That sucks!
Tell me about it... only the single motor from one set is working (typo in previous 0
any motor that is connected to a control pannel will work. It can't be a single, all in one motor.
ok. If you make an instructable on it I would stringly suggest putting instructions for the standard red ones. btw nice gun :-)
Not to be picky, but is stringly a word? lol

u should post instructions for it but i will try to build a really strong tripod, if i make one i will post it

The banana that you have is from a youtube video called REJECTED. I guy has a too big of a spoon and a banana walks up to him and says I am a banana.
LOL! THAT VIDEO IS HILARIOUS! I crack up laughing every time someone says "my spoon is too big". XD
