recon pipe problem

I want to get the air restrictor out without damaging or drilling the + thingy piece inside. Any ideas? If you do, please tell me because I am getting pretty sick of it being in the way. I cannot find out a single way. I show the right piece from a different mod to the right that I do not want broken. Will cutting the pipe and hot-gluing it work (only 100 percent definitely)?

we need better recon mods

Any new recon mods out there? I may be a newbie, but it seems that people are just re-uploading old mods.  Please leave a link in the comments box if you have anything new.   (P.S.- I would really appreciate a maverick integration without cutting)

What's the diameter of the NERF Longshot CS-6's barrel extension?

I'm currently using the existing Longshot barrel extension for my Recon, and I want a replacement for that to put one on my Longshot to make it look like a... well, a Longshot. If possible, could anyone recommend me a diameter that would fit snugly and yet still be able to be removed? I don't want it falling out while firing or holding, or not being removable.

Does anyone think they can make a well working replica for this gun made out of K'Nex?  I myself could probably make this, but due to a recent fire, I'm low on K'Nex, so I'd like to know if anybody is capable of doing that.

(note i have not made one but i might, just an idea) it will fire a nerf pocket vortex in will go below the Nerf recon the tactical rail it would be more for function than look. tell me what you think. ps i may just use a air fitting for a compressor  rather than a pump.

What's your Nerf arsenal?

Well, no one really talks about nerf guns here, and I thought I may as well bring it up. So, just like knexgunbuilder's topic on what your knex arsenal is, I want to know your nerf arsenal! Just to tell you had had three more guns: the Recon CS-6, a Nerf handgun, and some other gun that was really cheap. And also, my vulcan isn't automatic any more. (it's a long story, so don't ask)     What's yours?

PIC Microcontrollers

Hello. I'm just making my entrance into the world of microcontrollers. But as I self learning everything I have a few questions. I recently purchased 2 PICS (16F648A) and a programming board. The board works fine and I got it to connect to the computer and reconize the PIC. I guess my first question is, Is all hex code PIC specific? Meaning would I be able to use this code "" for my PIC? The models are very similar but not exact. If not, I would like to do the standard "Blink an LED" as my first project. How would I write my code for this PIC and what materials would I need? Thanks!

cooker hood condenser

Ok i have moved into a new studio which does not have an external vent fitted to the cooker hood and relies on a re-circulation kit comprising of a small tower and a disposable carbon filter (which can cost quite a bit to keep replacing). So what i was thinking was how about ducting it to a homemade condenser, something simple like a plastic container with a cut off of hood filter attached to an area near the top of the container and the vent ducted in through the top of the container it could be primed with an inch or so of water to get the process going..... i recon my concept is pretty basic but am i heading in the right direction?

How can I use a LM2907 and a microphone to distinguish between two given frequencies; either 5400 Hz or 1900 Hz?

I want to use a LM2907 and a microphone to pick up a frequency (also be able to distinguish between the two frequencies and background noise). I see before me that there will be two outputs. 5V or 0V for "picking up frequency" or "Just background noise" and another output telling whether the microphone picks up the 5400 Hz or the 1900 Hz by 0V or 5V, respectively (the order is not that important when I recon I just can put on an inverter).  What I need to know is the values for my C´s and R´s in the circuit. Can anybody help? I think the Minimum Component Tachometer-circuit will be a good starting point.  The outputs are used for inputs for logic gates.

Scholarship Submission: Emergency Pathfinder

Here is my idea on what the iCreate can be useful for, and quite possibly save lives: Have the robot follow the parameter of the house, using special indicators to map out the doors. This would most likely be something like shining a flashlight on it with the robot reconizing that through a photosensor. Once it maps the doors it lays dormant in it's initial starting position, either under a desk, in a hallway or wherever. It would enter a low power consumption sleep mode in which it would take carbon monoxide/smoke readings through a sensor every 1-2 seconds. If it detected a preset level of CO/smoke it would make a high speed pass to each of the doors it had learned about earlier and take additional CO/smoke readings as well as temperature. It would then return to the door with the lowest reading and use high intensity LEDs and a 15w or 30w siren to alert residents that there is in fact a fire and which exit is likely to be the best way out. This design isn't nearly as complicated as some of the others, but I believe it is something that could definately be pulled of and could actually provide some benefit to everyone.

Has anyone seen this motor and know how to run it?

Hi, I got A Rckit from my dads freind and was going to use it to drive a rc car. I set it up and it worked for awhile but I think it was the wrong ESC/Receiver and It went POOF when I was running it normally. A few months later I orderd a proper RC system To go with my arduino and after driving a few small cars and robots I decided to make somthing with more power. I found in My drawer the motors again and decided to run somthing with more power. I have No idea the voltage/current of these motors and want to know. After doing lots of rechurch i stumbled across what looked like the right reciver and batterys. I booked marked the page and couldn't find the motors. recentley i found what looks like the right motors but I am not sure (the ones I have the part nums are smudged). Does anyone reconize the motors or know if they are the same as the ones that I found. I am not looking to buy any driving systems for the motors. LINKS. Reciver/esc.  (looking at pics the one i thought was the same isn't) What motors i found thet look the same.   And  this. Batteys that plugged into the reciver.

Nerf Gun Modification Services

Hey all. I've been modifying nerf blasters for about 2 years now, and would like to make my services availbable to everyone. From integrations to breeches, you can find it here. I'll be willing to modify the following (to a certain extent on some blasters): Nightfinder Maverick Big Bad Bow Longshot Recon Switchshot Airtech 2000 Titan Scout My contracts will consist of a blaster that you send (or the money FOR the blaster and service). I will then perform the modification and send it back to you. Or, we can discuss the type of blaster you're looking for, make it a suprise, THEN talk prices.;=Movie.flv Copy and paste those links into your browser, they're pictures but I don't know how to attatch them.

Nerf Mods

There are so many different nerf mods for ALL nerf guns, But the question is "Which one brings enough power to make a nerf gun shoot far and fast with better accuracy?" Answer is all them, if you put all the mods for one gun into one gun you are going to get a great outcome unless you do the mod bad, take a Recon CS-6 for instance it is a low power nerf rifle not good for wars at all shoots around 20 feet but, mine has been modified and i am currently looking for different modifications for it but it shoots more than 80 feet  measured, exact results are 80 on most shots 1/10 shots shoots around 50 and that is because it was a BAD DART, here is what i did, (P.s: this will be a instructable for the mods in this....) 1 Removed AR 2 stretched out spring by plunger ( not recomended get a new spring if  you can ) 3 put a spring behind plunger to create more friction which pushes the barrel  forward more and causes a stronger air push. 4 made the air tube bigger by the AR with a drill Thats all i did it was easier than most mods i have done ( iremember the maverick i had no idea how to get into the roatating barrel) but it led to the best outcome, P.s doing the same thing makes the Raider CS-35 alot more stronger it will more than likely shoot 90+ I will be getting a longstrike soon so i will show you guys the AR Removal and other mods i know which can be applied to the gun and create another great Nerf Sniper Rifle, Later guys.
