Fireworks Launcher – Videos

During the fireworks launcher field trials I recorded the following videos.  They show the electronic nichrome ignition of both slow burning Visco Cannon Fuse and fast burning Artillery Shell Fuse.  Some of the software program capabilities are also demonstrated including ignition burn time, launch delay, type of launch and launch port firing sequence.  Finally, there are videos of the usage of the front control panel.
