    I would of loved it if they put the sound effects that Dan did for the cannon at the beginning into the slow-mo footage.

    "Never missed with a cannon before" - Gav, that should've told you something about your idea of placing a GoPro in proximity of where Dan was aiming. He literally told you he'd not miss it.

      Aren't the C stands like 100-200$ each? So Dan's total would have at least 1000 on there.

      @SiLenT366 It might've been around 1500-2500 when they first bought it though.

    Somebody wasn’t using a full Powder load in the Canon

  • Greg Wallace
    Greg Wallace Year ago

    Awesome idea but there is almost no powder charge in that load the cannon ball was drastically loosing elevation after only ~25 yards and seems to have about the kinetic energy of a shot put. It would have probably bounced off a refrigerator or imbedded in the side. BTW you should try a refrigerator but with a full charge that would be cool in ultra slow motion.
