The wind was fierce this day!!! The light rocket veered off target but distance was still impressive...
I still have to find a safe and approved location to fully distance test the paintball rockets.
Step 1: Safe In The City
I did obtain proper permission from the private owners of the property before conducting tests. The authorities were notified of the location and nature of the tests.
The tests did not include the firing of the toy at a target that would create concern.
The tests did occur on private property.
This device was designed for use in private areas where the participants were aware of the nature of the device. IE paintball range. that is the reason and design of the original colouring.
Inner city use may cause problems. Don't do it!!!!
In order to prevent getting arrested,,, shot... or raising the terror level... it is advisable to get proper permission from the authorities before firing ANY rocket in a public area.
The barrel of the device can be identified as a toy by orange indication. I have modified this one as shown for future tests.
The projectiles will be similar in identification.
For paintball... all bets are off, NO ORANGE... you and your army of friends will be hit from a long way away!!! HAPPY HIDING!!!
