Anyone else seen these? Could come in handy for the special farces games, although it's a bit on the expensive side.

I have seen them and I've watched video's of them working and they seem a bit poo.

I've contemplated playing around with a swarmfire (as it's all electrical when you pull the switch I believe) and somekind of remote trigger, be it a simple remote button or maybe a tripwire type switch or even get a raspberry pi in there and have it auto lock on targets, but my ability's are no where near good enough to start fiddling with that yet.

You could even mount a swarmfire on a remote controlled car and use it that way * I have a Lego remote controlled Monster Truck that I attached a phone to the front of a while ago for a bit of fun and live streamed the video to another device so I have a drivers eye view, that kind of thing can be done. But I think that exposes the potential for it to easily be stood on accidently, and that would make me cry Sad


* remnds me of my art student days when I attached a giant paper mache head to a remote controlled car with an exposed brain full of flashing lights and speakers playing music Smile

I've got a build planned for a speedswarm to have a motion detector and remote override, should have all the stuff for it in a few weeks but I'll have to try and get the wife to give me a break from decoratin to actually build it.

Swarmfires on remote controlled cars look fantastic! I think that's probably a more cost effective option. It can't be that difficult to wire up a radio on/off button into the loom to make that happen...

No the remote is pretty simple, either replace the trigger with a receiver or if you want to keep the manual firing option run it in parallel to the trigger. Could easily add a fire button to the car's remote as well.

The TRU link doesn't go there now, BTW.

I can picture GuN now... it'll be like Robot wars.

That's it! I'm getting a remote controlled car and duct taping a sword to  to chase BGUK and OMN around next month!

Just realised I was thinking of the Nerf Combat creatures, this seems better, but still no.
