Its been talked about a couple times. But in the end result it will be very heavy. Would would have to mount the gun, hopper, tank etc. Unless you go out and buy one of those cheapy guns that use the little 12 gram co2.

Why a paintball gun? i saw one with a shotgun and two that shoots rockets(mine excluded) be careful what and where you do this....it's bad enough that the fbi are watching us to make sure we don't use them to fly into buildings!

Smile! people will wonder what you're up to!!

you dont have to use a hopper, you can use a tube that only holds a couple balls.

For those that would like to shoot .22's, use a solenoid from a dot matrix printer to impact against the rim fire primer, you didn't hear that from me!

You can already put an airsoft gun on the front, very small and light setups... had a video at break.com but cant find it anymore...

If you are concerned about a hopper, use a Qloader, that can be mounted on a different part of the heli, and it will feed you balls no matter how you are flying.

Get a bird like of the kind you see in the remote video and photography forum, and instead of a camera, mount a marker or two (or substitute any other AMA-prohibited projectile launcher here ), and you could have the ultimate RC gunship

If it moves but shouldn't, duct tape. If it doesn't, but should, WD-40

I'm pretty sure it's against regulations. I read that it's prohibited install any explosive like devices on a plane. Even if it's harmless
Something like that. Either way I wouldn't do that.

i did shoot bottle rockets off my Z230 once,using a glow plug to ignite the fuse by remote control. had a tube that i put it in so it would go straight. worked ok as long as you don't shoot it at yourself....RON

Several people have done this. The last that I can rememeber was the Folks at NRI put a paintball gun on the autocopter and shot at "bad guys" that were driving around in a car.

The next thing that they did was to install an automatic 12 guage shotgun on the autocopter. Its on google and or youtube.
