How fast are you driving your CIM motor?
Is that a direct drive to the wheel?
What kind of material do you have on the wall of your shooter? What have you found about this material works really well?
How accurate were your shots from the 54 foot distance?
Thanks a bunch! I can’t wait to see you guys compete this year!
really cool. We’re definitely going to look at the magic behind pneumatic wheels after seeing so many videos of successful pneumo wheel shooters. Can’t wait to see you guys at Palmetto! Don’t think that trophy’s going without a fight though
We were shooting from between 40% - 75% (so about 2080RPM to 3900RPM)
Yep, direct drive to the wheel.
We are using PVC pipe there, cut in half. We found that it gets a good enough grip on the disc, while still allowing it to slip through the shooter (hopefully that makes sense! )
We were actually shooting at about 50 feet in the video (the part where we were shooting at the large blue tarp). It was fairly accurate, we made a majority of the shots, all without any RPM management.
Hopefully this answered some of the questions. Eric, I’ll get to your questions tomorrow, I’ll need to ask some other members about that, as I do not know. Sorry!
