    Nerf Praxis Problem

    Post  Ungmon on Thu Sep 15, 2011 9:05 am

    Hey Guys I got my praxis but I noticed in the last few metres of flight it curves wildly right anyone else having this problem?

    Also I've noticed that dirty or slightly damaged disks cause mis-fires so I have to blow the inside of the disks
    Thanks Boys

    I think it might just be the discs that fly off and curve. If you watch videos all the vortex blasters do that. Not all of them go straight.

    Maybe your angling the blaster just slightly causing it to curve.

    Oh i get it now. I don't know how to solve it but Coop772 had the same problem and i think he fixed it by removing a couple of the locks.

    The reason the disk' always curve to the right is because they are spinning clockwise when they exit the blaster.

    Why would they be turning clockwise?

    Im assuming its the way they get flung out of the blaster. They would not work if they did not have any spin on them, same idea as a frisbee.

    Well actually your pretty wrong. They get flung out by a catapult like mechanism powered by a spring and a catch. So it goes very straight unless there's a missalignment in the arm.

    If you open it up there's an arm on the right hand side that catches the disk a bit and induces some spin. Incidentally, because the arm is on the right it'll induce a clockwise spin.

    Also noted by this guy on NH:

    Have you ever tried to throw a disk of any kind without spinning it?

    That must be just the Praxis. I've got a proton and after full examination, i couldn't find any spinning part.....

    Edit: If it spins on the right, wouldn't that make it spin anti-clockwise?

    Nope. The disk is caught on the right hand side, slowing it down on that side. Left side is still going ahead at full speed, right is slowed. It'll spin clockwise.

    Run near a pole, as you go past extend your right hand and catch the pole. Tell me which way you turn, right or left.

    So

    Post  Ungmon on Fri Sep 16, 2011 9:14 am

    So its pretty normal for it to veer right near the end of it's 'flight' because the rotation on it is sped up
