I found this browsing youtube. It would be really cool too see at LL or something as a mortar or even put on its side as a tank buster. It looks really easy to make and a lot of fun. I couldnt imagine the awesomeness of a mortar attack with a couple of those on the other side of a battle field, especially at LL. The only concern could be the plastic head, but you could easily replace that with like half a nerf football.

There has been a lot of debate on the safety aspects of mortars. The rocket design would seem to lend itself a "safer" projectile than a nerf or grenade. Id like to see a vid of it impacting something it would tell a lot about if it could take a mask off with a direct hit or do any lasting damage. Sure the nose cone is an issue but you could form the foam to make a new nose. I dont know...Im half tempted to make a smalller version and stick it on the end of my Havoc and see what happens.

That thing could probably knock off a mask easily. I would definetly size it down for paintball use. I wanted to see what people thought of the concept. If it was allowed, the rockets I would use would probably be only about 2" wide and about a foot long so they are safer, and I can carry way more rockets. I would probably also hollow out half of a foam football for the rocket tip so its safe. If this was legal I can imagine a 10-15ft kill radius taking out so many people in an open field area.

Yeah that size it probably would. I guess I already had the smaller version in my head when I posted. :blink:

Most producers dont allow the use of hair spray or other flammable aerosols as a propellent. It actually would be fairly simple to mod the design to run on co2 or HPA. The only real issue would be the rockets and what would happen if one would accidently hit a player.

im working on a 3d rough model on solid edge would it be more practical to use a screw to move it up and down or colapsaqble locking legs? also would making a paintball grenade thing work like a ballon almost that you fire out of it?

Im not sure if its safe for game use but and airsoft company makes a mortar that could be used in paintball called Hades Arrow. youd probably just have to ask the field owner first but it seems like a cool little toy to play with.

I doubt making this smaller would make it any safer. In fact, I think a smaller one would be more dangerous.

Thats basically the same design that every potato gun uses, they're not very safe. I'd imagine that it would have to be changed into something that used compressed air, which would be pretty easy, and much safer.
