wouldn't be a big deal to set something up on a tripod

Got a good idea for the "pins", if I can only figure out all the details.

Wooden paint mixing paddles with pool noodle foam over one end. The paddles are allowed to pivot in the middle when hit. When all the pins are down, pull a string to reset the pins remotely. No, I haven't been drink'n....just think'n..........whatchu think'n ?

OK, papabatman,

How about small magnets on the bottom of the paddles to hold the "pins" upright until hit.?

Weather getting nice. Must spend more time fly'n, less time think'n. Have an engineer friend with advanced think'n capabilities. Will discuss the project with him.

yes could work, but if you only hit one cup might bring more down. we are just going to go with the slurrpy cups for now. working on building a bowling plane. only rule so far is no wing planes.
