...which leads to this

what about a flying casket of death...think about it.

all your loved ones help carry your casket to the grave. they place it down over the lowering ropes. a few words are spoken, some tears shed. And just when they are about to lower you into your eternal resting place...BOOM SHOOO BOOM! Your casket flies off into the heavens.

Now that would be the best rocket show ever

Considering we're posting in a forum predicated on a sport that involves spending copious amounts of time throwing round pieces of plastic in parks...hello kettle this is pot speaking.

So as an update...I've managed to get everything (I think) to rebuild this insanity. Got a bunch of carbon fiber tube for the spokes and lower basket. 1000mm x 16mm carbon fiber tubes are expensive and they're a real PITA to cut yo. I have 30 cuts to make and each one takes about 15 minutes unless I can figure out a quicker and safe way to cut it. CF dust is super duper nasty so I can't just chop it up with anything other than hand tools.

I've got a plan formulated now it's just a matter of making it all happen.

Can that be cut with one of those clamp style pipe cutters? If I recall, that's what I seen somebody cut carbon fiber arrow shafts to length....but it was eons ago I witnessed that.

Something like this?
