one more reason to go to field day...
putting antennas up with this launcher. We'll be tyng a string to the ball, then launching the ball over the trees at the field day / summer fest site to to use to suspend antennas into the trees.

My buddy Chris has played hockey as a goalie for as long as i can remember, so we decided to put him in front of the launcher..

What are you using C02?  Shooting a tennis ball?

Looks like fun times testing it!
