Default Having Fun with the USS

I tried dropping some[link=http://ob.windycitynovelties.com/EPaySoft/Cart/product.asp?ITEM_ID=6494&CatID=308] party favor paratroopers [/link] at Spadfest 06, but I could only drop one at a time and with my original drop box, it require me to pull almost straight up vertical, in order to launch it. After I got back from SF, I built a new drop box, and today I was able to drop 4 paratroopers at one time. Here is a [link=http://media.putfile.com/USS-ParaDrop]short video clip of it. [/link]

I plan on using the new drop box for a candy drop hopper also.

Omaha

Thanks! Here is [link=http://media.putfile.com/Flour-Bomb-Drop-56]another video I did[/link], that same day, releasing a two Styrofoam Cups thingy-ma-bobs with a little flour in them. You can read more about it [link=http://spadworld.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12582]in this thread[/link].

Neat toy!

We are supposed to do a parachute drop activity during the introductory for new students this year. Dropping them from the CLB will be a lot more fun than dropping them from the top of the stairs.
