Hello and welcome to The Slingshot Channel I had a lot of positive reactions about my little steampunk compressed air pistol I want to go back and do some more stuff with it basically, as a reaction to you guys comments. First of all, a lot of people said the short arrows don’t really fly right because the fletching is too long. They said because the fletching was going all the way to the front, that I should cut it off shorter. I’ve done that, let’s test if it’s now flying more stable. Alright, let’s test it. It is definitely better. It is still not perfect, but definitely an improvement. Steel version next. Yep. Better flight. Ok, as you see, the flight was better but still, not perfect. Maybe these fletchings need to be a little larger. I think I’ll have to continue to work with that. This is the arrow that we shot last time, made from steel. Was really heavy, 160g. And, it wasn’t flying really stable. And people told me “That is the case because it only has 2 vanes, and the vanes aren’t put on at an angle so it doesn’t spin.” Some people also said “it’s because of the recoil,” So, therefore it’s kind of thrown off course. Also, this steel nail looks kind of dangerous… but I think it’s *NOT DANGEROUS ENOUGH* for this channel! So, I’ve decided to look into alternatives. Kunai knives are really really bad ass if it comes to penetration because they’re so sharp and pointy. So, what if attach a kunai knife instead of the nail? Is that possible?
YES! Let me show you what I came up with. Meet the kunai knife arrow
*MUAHAHA* As you see the kunai is really really attached to the steel tip. It’s again embedded into aluminum and then stabilized with wire and epoxy. Also, I used different vanes. I used vanes that are put on at an angle, as you can see. So, in theory, it should give the arrow spin while flying. Let’s test it. Ok, we are back at the long barrel, so we’ll have an RE08 model again. *MUAHAHAHA* WOW! That was really good! Wow, this thing has some kick. Really serious penetration, of course. And, I did see the arrow spinning. I hope the slow-mo is going to show that even better. Okay. Wow. I think this… …would have cut through a lot of tissue, arteries and everything. Let’s try again with the reduced power from the second filling. Even better, I think. One more time. This time, I will try to stabilize the recoil with a second hand. Right! *MUAHAHAHA* Wow. I think this thing now really reaches a level where you can call it dangerous *MUAHAHAHA* Okay, here is a little preview to coming attractions. *MUAHAHAHA* I want to make a launcher for this and then go Pokémon huntin’. *MUAHAHA* It will be fun. I also already bought the correct outfit for that occasion. Anyway, I hope you liked this because… …that’s it for today. Thanks, and bye bye.
