The designer of the EADS Barracuda sent us this video of his shrunk down version, the mini Barracuda. The plan file already contains the smaller version, but the video shows a couple of things.
First, hand launching the mini Barracuda is an adventure! The running start and toss is certainly a great way to do it. But also, the use of EPP foam might be a good idea as it does allow it to bounce quite nicely. One option is to build a bungee launcher, but what fun would that be? The excitement of pushing up the throttle, running and chucking the Barracuda looks very exciting.
So check out the mini Barracuda!
