Very well done ! But weren't a way to avoid torturing those poor 5 axles ? Otherwise, how far does it shoot ?

The first thing that went through my mind when I saw the shot of the beam flying towards the camera was "WHEEEEEE~" :laugh: Nice work.

A interesting video demonstration. :laugh:

Thanks Sariel for bringing us special Mocs built from Lego each time and will be more in the future. :thumbup:

I'd say 3 meters easily, but you can probably get more if you play with the drawstring's tension.

Hi

I thoughts this:

"read, Roman Balista, nah, i do not want to click on that topic...."

"Oh wait! It is posted by Sariel!!! Must read! click!"

Thanks for sharing this. Did you check when parts are breaking or bent over? I think the predetermined breaking point here are the grey axles and the axle hole on the liftarm, right?

Nice piece of work. Clever design, nothing left to take away in order to simplify it more.

Unfortunately it is to late for TLG to get this to shops in time for Christmas. This would have been a great set in the 20-25€ range. :laugh:

Lego would have to find a way to avoid twisting the axles, but I agree I think it would make a good set.
