Machinegun for RC plane


Hi all

Since a while I'm working on the project of miniature machinegun for RC plane and FPV flying.
I know there are some practical concepts based on cutted off cheap 6mm plastic ASG but IMHO they are toys, heavy, weak and with poor ROF.
My goal is to make something more compact and much more powerful - but still reasonably safe for hobby use.
The gun is not yet ready but it has now some decent stage and I will successfully update this page while progress.

The concept of the machinegun:
* CO2 operated (12-16g cartridge)
* weight limit below 300 grams (gun+ammo+co2)
* ammunition 4,45mm callibre steel BB
* power up to 2 Joules
* rate of fire 10 bps minimum

The project is still ongoing. Any of your comments and ideas are welcome ( including critisism ).

Here is first photo (no magazine designed yet and tripod is just for a cool look):

This does beg the question of what you would need this for.

Hi, is there any chance you can build me a machine gun similar to what you have. I would like to put it in my Hawker Hunter. It would add huge detail and sound to the aircraft. I know its only a project and not for commercial use but if you up to it it will be fantastic.
