Hello Tom! I have a question about this model, I am having a school project to make a Trebuchet and it can only be crafted from cardboard and popsicles. Its length, width, and height must be 25 cm. Please can you show me how to make it? Thanks so much.

the thought of this concept scaled up to full size is terrifying...also how much more potential energy could be gained if you had a solid flywheel not just the ring

If you had added 2 or 4 arms instead of a single arm it might allow for a multishot trebuchet plus I think it would be better in terms of the stability of the whole system..

I didn't watch the video because 180 mph is really not that impressive for a machine you make... pro tennis players can serve up to 160 mph... make it go 1,000 mph and maybe ill consider watching.

Have you considered putting tracking devices into the trebuchet projectiles and convert that into a visualization? It would be neat to see 10 shots done and to see its accuracy/grouping.

I want to do this for fun at like one of those destruction rooms to relieve stress. except now put grenades in the trebuchet. have the mechanism to release pin attached to flywheel and just use wireless trigger.

the reason your metal frame pieces are so strong and rigid is the same reason that curved display phones have a higher resistance to bending

some camera lenses may cause image distortion (especially near the edges) and distance from the lens because angles. This would affect velocity calculations. Do you have the right lens, or software to correct for this?

you should connect a bike to the thing you spin to get it up to speed, make sure the bike has gears or use the electric bike. Might get you faster throws of the tennis ball.

Yeah, That's great you made it work... Well you forgot your two most important aspects of using this method.. why did you use the gear ratio and not go for a higher gear ratio, to the length of the throw for your crank, to the amount of wait of the flywheel. if your going to use this sort of mechanism other than just make it work how can you optimist the throwing speed to take it to the strength of what a man can produce.

How about throwing GPS signal devices. So you can tell and show graphically how far it went the projectiles goes. Or using a go pro cam would be amazing and also to see how it looks when it's traveling the cam

You have loss of energy in your side to side motion. Simple fix. Screw the thing to a couple of aluminum beams running left to right and pin them to the ground with concrete stakes. Longer handle.

I like videos like this .we have thrown away technologies that we think we have a better ways with but with today’s materials carbon fiber ,neodymium magnets ,rethinking old technologies. Is where I believe we should go .perfecting steam reusing the water especially when it comes to regenerative heating .and so much more sound wave technology today can heat water incredibly fast .new turban designs and materials could make a vast improvement any electric generation not to mention. gravity a constant it doesn’t depend upon the sun or the wind thank you again.
