    This thing has POWER, we have made some tweaks to the sling and we have constant good shots now, but what would you fire out this thing. See you soon with more chucking action.

      I think the "tape shaped" strap could have an aerodynamic disadvantage before a round section one. Wouldn't be a good idea to roll It?


      Colin I am obviously not able to send text messages that make sense. I watchedTom Stanton launch a boomerang goodbye with a trebuchet and I wondered the size of your monster could probably launch an aircraft give it a shot


      Colin I’ve been watching Tom Stanton again and he’s been throwing a boomerang with a tribochy Iwondered if you can launch an airplane with yours as big as it is give it a shot

    Hi! I think that , starting with a desk toy idea , you can develop a "modified" trebuchet , as : ...or a "more attractive " simple machine.

    Releasing way to early. A trebuchet of that calibre should be tossing those things a good 3/4 mile

    Tie a base jumper to it and let them parachute to the ground. Base jumpers are insane so they probably would give it a go.

    4:03 there's a fucking idiot standing down range, what the fuck are you doing? You obviously don't have any sort of safety or weapons consultant, and you NEED one if you can't even understand such a basic thing. I'm sorry I love the channel Colin, but this is a toy that could easily kill someone if you're cluelessly fucking about with it. Please upvote this, people.

    lock the base down before firing, You are loosing quite a bit of energy moving the Trebuchet that could be focused into the projectile. Great fun Colin, your channel makes me laugh sooo much!

    The weight is decelerating too soon. launching at like 70+ degrees instead of 45.

    I think your sling is too long

  • Herbgotty

    as some one that has played with trebuchets before the sling was bugging me at least you had that one throw to show it can launch it far

    Brings back memories of when me and a few mates built one after being inspired by AoE like 20 years ago. We cobbled together a 12ft one from some spare bits and bobs on my family's farm - mostly permapine logs and coach screws. Counterweight was a 50kg block of concrete. Axle was a big bolt from a salvage yard lubricated with a bunch of grease. It wasn't exactly built with precision, but we played around with the slip pin angle and sling and got it to throw fruit in a rather consistent manner.

    Instead of trying to make a sling that can work for all the different projectiles at once, just make several different slings. Also, get rid of trying to release the strange shapes like a washing machine with a sling, they will be better served by a strap connection that stayes attached to the projectile with a quick release on the strap, like some kind of explosive decoupler bolt.

    I've seen a lot of these built over the years including ones that are built to historical specs and they're all the same. They don't shoot far. And considering they were made of wood it'd be pointless if you have to get closer than arrow range to make them hit the mark. So it was nice to see one . ..almost work. It's hard to believe they were used in the past *at all* when we can't even make one with modern tools and equipment that does the job like historical reports say they were used.


    The drone shots are mad
