Hey, I'm new to this forum. Shocked
You guys seem to be experienced well in the way of anything mechanised. Smile

I have a little bet going with my friends.
I live up here in australia, And the state i live in, Once a night Fireworks are permitted to be let off.
The bet was to make the best frame/gun that was functioning and safe.
So i'm thinking they'll go with standard designs.
So i am thinking that perhaps i can make a standard frame for one and then mount it on something remote controlled, Would surely win me the bet.
And now i don't mean to use this for dangerous reasons, i just like winning bets. Cool

I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas on this subject Question

Welcome,

I don't know much about fireworks. Could you explain what a frame is. Is it the area where fireworks are setup and launched from?

You could have a simple computer program pulse parallel port pins. Those pins could be used to fire the fireworks.
