Thread: How many are planning on doing rockets?

  1. How many are planning on doing rockets?

    I've got a few designs for launch pods already drawn out. Who else is planning on giving there robot some solid-fuel artillery?

    Re: How many are planning on doing rockets?

    I was thinking about doing something with rockets. My design would attach the fuse directly to the body of the rocket and have it in a stacked tube, similar to a gun magazine. The top of the tube would lead to a barrel, with two contact points for actually firing.. Pretty simple ehh.

    I was thinking about doing something with just like a block of four or six that all fire at the same time off of one fuse-simple, and with more rockets in the air theres a greater chance at hitting something.

    Rudakai,

    You can't launch them all at once. There is a "No shotgun" rule. They would be easy enough to launch one at a time, with simple 555 timers. You can have a chain of 555's that launch them all sequentially very rapidly.

    Note: I'm not certain if the unlimited class changes this rule or not.

    I plan on using about a dozen or so MicroMaxx micro-rockets for my Hardcore Class configuration.

    MSpurk- rockets won't be allowed in the Airsoft Class, and the Hardcore Class doesnt have a limitation on shotgun type weapons. So in theory you can launch a volley of rockets all at once in the Hardcore class.

    Does this mean that the target sensors for the hardcore class will allow for a higher rate of fire?

    Nope. The target sensor will still only register 1 hit per second, this is for simplicity in programming them and for balance reasons.

    I'm just going for crowd pleasing stuff-What gets people chearing? Launching rockets. What gets people chearing louder? More rockets!

    lol, I'm down with that!
    Anyone know about the accuracy on these things though? I can't imagine their terribly accurate.
