they can even go further than that, but i think the amount of hangar they had was limited :), there are sooo many possibilities with this thing, like when you see a group of smoking people, they hear a distant bam, they look at you not knowing what happened, they see SOMETHING standing, and suddenly wooooooosh hihi, soo much fun with this thing, apart from giant smokecircles (that thing has GOT to learn me how to do it)

i want to make one...

would it be stronger if its longer?

lol the delay was crazy.

if you want to make it stronger you would have to make ot pull further back. Also you would need a stronger material in the back to handle the pressure. You also have to build it exactly as it looks on the video. Its the Cone Shape and the narrow front that produces a whirlwind making it travel longer

Why not just go right to 180 feet after the joke on the ladies? Advancing by increments of 20 ft was just a waste of made the vid drag. The air cannon is still freakin' awesome, tho!
