Captain Chicken to the rescue!

01 October 2008 - 08:23 AMMy only thought is this: Impersonating a photographer is fine, walking around saying "I'm just a simple photographer" isn't really any different than being a spy saying "I'm on your team", etc. However, when any photographer gets near a location of special interest (the general's tent, for example) he/she must be questioned on if they are in play or not. Obviously, if the "photographer" states that they are not playing / are not in play, that is no different than calling themselves out. That means that anything they try to do affects the game in no way. If they say they are playing, etc, whoever interprets that as "oh, he's still just a photographer" is an idiot.
Just my two cents.

I can't think of any reason for the valve breaking other than being too hard on it or it being used for something it wasn't mad for.
Now, from the looks of it, it is a valve rated for CO2, but I can't be certain. Have you tried any other kinds of valves?
14 March 2008 - 08:18 PMConceptually, as long as you are able to use a chopper / plane that can carry the payload, it wouldn't be that difficult. A chopper would be the easiest to use (of course, that is if you know how to fly one well) because you could have a forward / downward facing camera to see where you are going and what's below you.
To drop the payload, you would need a long distance remote switch, which could be rigged up using old toys or if you know where to get them, the actual switches and triggers. All you'd need to do is flip the switch / press the button, and that would cause the remote device to move, which could easily be hooked up as hook that opens.
The problem however, is that the chopper or plane would definitely be shot at, and destroyed. A paintball has enough momentum to hit the wing of a plane and cause it to lose it's air velocity and go into a dive or hit the chopper in a propeller causing it to spin out of control (especially the tail rotor). If it were used in a game, it would need to be specified that shooting at the plane or chopper isn't allowed, or your payload will be hitting the ground with your bomber.
It'd definitely add a really interesting element to a game though, and someone who knows R/C planes or choppers well could do it with general ease.
