I have been thinking about a design for a nerf variation of the dragonfire drones from black ops 2. It would consist of two remote control helecopters of relatively large size, and some kind of firing mechanism mounted in between them. Any suggestions or input? I need ideas!

Okay so I had this old nerf gun for a while and finally decided to mod it. I took it apart and fixed it to be a single shot sniper that will shoot about 100-150 feet. The only problem is the original quick release valve is completely sucky and severely limits my range. Does anyone know how to replace or modify the air release trigger to make it release more rapidly?

Hi, I was wondering if I could have some help coming up with a circuit, Basically me and my friend are modding nerf guns and I thought it would be cool If I could find a way to make the rapid strike fire three darts then stop (or three round bursts XD) Any how the part of the dart gun this in-tales seems to be the little arm that pushes darts into two rotating discs (this is one that uses fly wheels as opposed to a plunger) it works on a motor and gear that pushes it in and out, pushing the trigger activates this. (I thought it would be a solenoid and that the trigger would put out electricity in bursts, or are those called pulses? any way that's where all this using a momentary switch idea comes from) So if anyone thinks that they can make a circuit using only the power from the trigger and lots of good timing a lesson would be much appreciated :D My Idea seems unnecessarily complicated but it's all I could come up with :D ,Any way the idea for the momentary switch circuit would be put some form of proximity sensor switch near the arm (the one that pushes the dart into the fly wheels). Something like a magnet switch or IR thingy ( I forgot what there called I think magnetic reed switch and Infa red proximity sensor or detector?) the idea after that was that each time the arm passed the sensor it would activate the sensor, using that and the trigger(if they were both needed to initiate the circuit then releasing the trigger would reset the circuit) the first and second shots would push the dart into the fly wheels and the third would also push a dart into the fly wheel and turn off the circuit(or turn on the circuit activating a spdt relay and switching the link to the motor off) So far I've come up with some ideas using relays but just pressing the button once activated the whole circuit, I've also though of using a capacitor but I don't really know how to use them, if they work by holding X charge that can be filled by pressing a momentary button, that is hooked up to Y amount of power (possibly through a resistor), Z amount of times fills the capacitor stopping the circuit that would work, though I would have to find a way to discharge it... Thanks for any help if I get any XD , and if posting my current not working circuit designs would help I'll do that, just have to figure out how to draw a circuit...

REASON FOR QUESTION: I would like to modify a Power Wheels with a pop up berf gun for my son. So it would kind of be like a "raider" vehicle or weaponized dune buggy. This is strictly in the theory stage. WHAT I WANT: I would like to have a switch on the dash that raises the nerf gun out of the front storage compartment, or rotates it out of a cavity, or something like that, and then wire a momentary switch to either the dash, steering wheel, or horn that activates the "Battery operated Nerf". WHAT I KNOW: Unfortunately I have no working knowledge of arduino or coding. I would like to learn, but dont know where to start. I do no electronics, and R/C. Wiring the momentary switch to the "Nerf gun" should be no issue, its how to "arm" it (for lack of a better term) that i dont know. I was thinking that i could use a high torque servo, but I dont know how to wire it up to a switch, if thats even possible. I then thought about a stepper motor, but again, i dont know how, and that route seems costly. Fabricating brackets, arms, hinges, all easy. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE OUT A WAY TO MAKE THIS POSSIBLE? AND DUMB IT DOWN FOR ME AS WELL. here are some concept pictures I was thinking of. and a few pictures of the tentative vehicle and Nerf choices. the front of the vehicle has a storage compartment that should fit a smaller nerf easily. I would just make a new split door for it, that would open up when the gun was armed. that would be done easily with servos, if their was a way to. at this point i might just make a roll cage to mount the VULCAN chain gun on and call it a day. or hack a rc remote, but id rather not. ANY IDEAS?

I wanted to build a servo automated nerf gun ,however i am not sure what type of servo i should choose and how much torque i will require.The gun i want to trigger is a semi automatic nerf barricade rv-10 .Should i buy the small 9g hobby servos' or will my need be satisfied y the larger ones which provide torque.I am not using anything to amplify the pull of the trigger by the servo and i am connecting the servo horn directly to the trigger using a small metallic wire like piece .Please help me chose a servo.

I am planning to make a servo automated nerf gun but i am not sure what type of servo to choose.Is it the 9g series or the bigger ones. I really don't want to choose the wrong one,.The nerf gun is a nerf barricade rv-10 and i'm not sure how much force is required to pull it's trigger.It would be really great if someone could help me out.

I'm planning an internal laser sight mod for a Maverick Nerf gun, and I've bought a cheap 5v laser module from eBay. I plan to fit a near 5v rechargable battery, or 4x 1.2v AA batteries, but from my understanding of battery chargers, would the USB's 5v be to low to recharge them (The charging voltage seems to be consistently 150% the batteries' output voltage for all my electical devices).

So I was wondering if there was anyway I could make or buy an electronic air valve. What I need is something simmilar to a sprinkler valve only smaller and with smaller holes on each side so I could attach a relatively small air hose to it (~1/4" outer diameter). I plan on using this to replace the ball valve on my homemade nerf gun. Any help is appreciated :)

I have an idea for modding a nerf gun involving attatching a typewriter cylinder to it so that either firing or cocking the gun causes the cylinder to "Ding". Is it possible to safely detatch the cylinder of an old typewriter so that the sliding mechanism and bell still function correctly? Also, could someone please provide me with a chart of the individual mechanisms within an antique typewriter? Thank you Instructables.

You throw around the ball, and it detects the band your wearing. so if the person wearing the red band, catches the ball, it will say "Red Caught the ball! New round?" or something like that. so, how do you make those bands? Or, Where can i get them? PS i know it dosn't sense color. i tried that already, there's somethings inside of the bands

I am building an automatic sentry gun, where a nerf gun, using a camera, will target a moving object, aim and shoot at it. This is a course project and the professor said I need to add an extra feature, or make it more intelligent than that to get an A. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can add to this system to make it cooler and more A- deserving. All ideas are welcome:D Thank you!
Question by Chris414 | last reply
I'm working on a Predator (as in the movie) style Laser sight for one of my Nerf guns using three laser pointers (or rather the lasers inside of them). I want to use AA or AAA for the power source because button batteries are expensive and don't last. The laser pointers each use 3 batteries at 1.5v a piece for a total of 4.5v. Since AA and AAAs have the same voltage that isn't a problem. The problem is that I want all three lights to come on at the same time with a press of a button, and the only way I know to do that would be to wire them to one power source. I'm also a bit limited on space, so one power source would be ideal. So my question is this: Do I need to increase the voltage in order to power all three lasers or will 4.5v be enough to power them without dimming? I have little experience in this field, so any help/suggestions would be appreciated.
Question by Echosi | last reply
I am currently creating a coil gun within a small nerf pistol. Everything is going well, it all fits within the gun quite nicely actually. But one problem I've realized is that there is nothing keeping the ammo within the barrel (a bic pen tube) I would like to hear some ideas on how to keep the ammunition (which is currently undecided, if that helps. I'm considering either small steel balls or nails) within the barrel until the coil is activated. It is worth noting that because of the design of this particular gun, the trigger is not a lever, but instead a simple sliding mechanism that hits a button situated right behind it. One option I'm considering is using an electromagnet hooked up to a NC (normally closed) switch also hooked up to the trigger. The magnet would keep the ammunition in place, and pulling the trigger would turn it off. I have already added a sliding switch to turn on and off the gun, and I could wire the second magnet to that switch as well. The complication I foresee arising from that is that the electromagnet may still have residual magnetism for a few milliseconds, which could hold the ammunition in place for longer than it takes the capacitors to discharge. thoughts?

In early May 2019, Instructables' website has been radically reworked with a revamp. Changes I have observed include:Navigation: Many categories and subcategories have been eliminated and instead reworked under other folders as part of the changes (there is no "Play" category and subcategories such as "NERF" and "Paper Airplanes" no longer exist) "Recent" filtering is not directly available to people browsing the site--you must sift through the categories and get through at least two pages to find a way to filter the selected category for "recent" (i.e. Homepage -> Circuits -> Projects -> (Page at which you may select "recent")) There are no filters for searches On the front page and in the categories' main pages, featured projects are emphasizedThe Forum/"Community": Without manually typing in the URL, there is no direct way to access the "community" page Buttons to access the forum among in the category pages are tied to the community pages for that category (as a result. They do not allow you to see the general forum posts of the community without viewers manually deleting the category from the URL and going from thereThe way people navigate about sites controls what they can see and how they see if, so all of these things will change the flow and behavior of Instructables' viewers versus how it was before. Versus before, it is more cumbersome for viewers to get to recent content while featured content is more readily available. This will influence where people go and what they see.----------------------------------What do I believe this means for the future?Drawing on my decade of experience on this site, I suspect viewership of non-featured Instructables will drop. Thus, the viewership gap--between those projects that have been featured and those that have not--will then widen.Of these changes I think people will say you either "get featured or get buried."

Im working on a electrical upgrade for a power wheel. Im hoping someone can take a look at it and tell me if it looks ok, or if they see a problem with it. The mod keeps the 12V 12Ah system, but adds an additional 6V 1200Ah SLA Battery wired through a realy to allow a 18V boost when the Switch is triggered momentarily. Ive also attempted to add the following features: -6V Battery meter for (NOS) Battery -12V Battery Meter -2 Remote fired Nerf Guns -2 Small front speakers with a 3.5mm jack and a usb portfor an MP3 Player -2 working switch activated headlights -2 working switch activated fog lights -2 working brake lights -18V nos Button for a momentary boost I have it drawn to use a 12V charger and a 6V charger, because the batteries will obviousely drain at different rates. I only have a basic knowledge of how relays work. My biggest concern is the chargers. Will they charge the Vehicle the way they are, or do I need to add another relay so that when a charge is detected i t disconnects the "ignition". Also if I have all of the voltages correct. the regulator breakdowns are on the right along with the relay info. Thank you for any help you can provide. EDIT: Added another drawing for some updated ideas. 3/11/13: I know that the DPDT coils are only getting 6V. ignore the DPDT part number and specs. i was able to find 6V DPDT relays. -Also added three supporting photos, charging, run mode, accessory mode. (Black lines have no connection in supporting pics, except main ground, which is also black) - Had to redraw, the DPDT's I found could only handle 15A per contact, and im pretty sure the motors alone draw around 18A. So back to lots of SPDT's 3/12/12: Heres a schematic for the main system stopping at the terminal board. im not worried about the lights and accessories, those i know how to wire, Please let me know if this will work. I apologize in advance, im not very good at drawing schematics, thats why i stick to drawing the physical layout.
