Posted:Tests were completed last night and I now have the BEST TOY EVER.

Its a firestaff fitted with electric detonators in the wicks, a rechargable battery and a switch. Push a packet of flash powder into each end and when you push the button BOOM! Big flash which lights the wicks grin

Got a couple of adjustments to make, mostly to do with making the wicks light faster but it works!

I'll upload the video when I can get online somewhere thats not work.

I'm back! And still haven't made the video... Was working hard on BJC stuff though, does that count as an excuse?

I shall get it done in the next week I promise promise promise.

burning_ninja, I've not noticed any real damage to the wicks, but its a bit early to say yet!
