New/Stumped/Need Help - Solenoid Simulated Recoil Answered
I have the body of an old Airsoft M4A1 and instead of throwing it away i had the idea of making it have simulated recoil through a solenoid. Now of course i realize that i could never make something with the kick of a real gun but at least something i could feel.(Like the arcade games) I have had some really successful tests with LI-PO batteries but they were all to big and had bad connection spots, and then i tried 6 AA batteries in series with a 1000uF 16v capacitor(I dont know if i am using the right capacitor or if i wired it incorrectly), but my attempts have failed, i am new to circuits and electricity, any thoughts on a power source,or ideas on different angles i could go.
P.S.-The solenoid is homemade and is made up of 14g wire (All i had laying around)-And functioned well with a 3.7v 6000mAh Li-Po battery(Recycled from an old portable charger)
