Mounting underway....been winterizing Acacin Armouries so I've been doing carpentry kinda osik all weeken-which sucks because I have homework and commissions to be working on -_-

(Been doing this while drills were charging)
Black and weathered:made sure the muzzles were scorched.

Made sense;
Left: slayer>predator shoulder cannon
Right: blackened>all I could come up with



Edit: had some issues with the launchers popping bAck down so I just moved the springs over(there'll be individual, nicer springs replacing these once I pick some up, ima check around tomorrow for some.

O NOEZ DOUBLE POST!!(&]~,?*

Got the proper springs and switched them out .




Then my stupid mom was having a sh#t fit starting osik with everyone so I stayed at Acacin Armouries until the sheb holes all went to bed. But while there I installed a cooling fan to reduce the condensation of perspiration as it will affect my future electronics being added to it. Haven't done the electrical yet but I'll have 2 sets of batteries hooked up in series-parallel formation so they last twice as long without having to be changed.   The fan is a 0.19A PC boxer fan so it's fairly powerful. I have a 0.42A fan I wanted to use but it was a bit too tall for this application as there still needs to be the hydration pack and batteries, so I'll build a mini cage for it do there's still room for airflow.

Started with a 2.5" hole saw

( the green is off the sides of the Bluemol holesaw, just so you don't think it's some kinda plastic or something)


Then cut this grill out of a computer case.

And riveted it on with 3/16" pop rivets.


After that I pile out the old battery box since I'll rework that with either a custom sealed enclosure or just 9v battery holders.
(Jetpack is upside down )

Awesome idea on the shoulder guns. Just a quick question does the spring move them or are they stationary?

Their stationary for the time being, Im still looking into automation. I could use 15cm pistons but then I'd need a hydraulic system, so I'm looking for electromechanical actuators that would do the trick however they can't be digital because having a computer to decode the pulses seems like a bit much for just the one system.

Dude that's gonna be awesome.  I was just wondering because spring loaded stuff is a no go for approval.

Thats spring loaded blades mainly, I dont think this falls under that criteria because the springs keep it either in the up or down position, you need to physically move it by hand in order for them to go up.

Can you grab a video of the launchers going up and down?
