I love overkill in things like that & I think it's marvelous. I just wish the pictures were bigger and better.

Yep, I'd expect a visit from the NSA A little bigger and you have anti-plane capabilities

Pretty cool Dean. I think we're going to shoot some clays today.

Are you going to add a wobble unit to change trajectory of the clays? That is really nice. Overkill is a standard around here!

We took it out for a couple of test throws, freaking awesome! I guess you could call our mods a wobble unit and yes it's to change the trajectory of the clay. I needed more of a challenge for the kids, they would get onto where it was going and smoke every one thrown. Don't get me wrong I love seeing them hitting every clay but they need more of a challenge. A pheasant or quail won't fly in any set direction so why should we practice that way. I did throw one clay with the thrower tilted all the way up into a 15mph head wind, it landed at the thrower.

Well crap. I set the alarm to wake up early this evening just to watch the video promised yesterday.

Glad to see(or you see) it's working as planned.

Sorry about the video we got busy and forgot to actually video it. We did find out that it doesn't drive very well in rough ground hmmm maybe tracks.

That is a hoot, Dean.

Fine job, very impressive and it looks like it would be a lot of fun for kids of all ages.
