    DESTIN'S VIDEO- • How Hard Can You ...
    I started a company called CrunchLabs where we build a toy together and then I teach you all the juicy physics for how it works. So if you want to learn to think like an engineer and have really fun time doing it, check out the current promotion where you get 2 FREE boxes at crunchlabs.com
    You should also go subscribe to the CrunchLabs Clip-Share channel cause we’ve got some bangers in the pipeline- / crunchlabs

    Summary: We made a rocket powered golf club that can swing at 150mph. Instead of just showing the final build I wanted to walk through the engineering design process. We failed in 6 different ways before eventually getting it just right. My friend Destin came and helped out and shot some amazing high speed shots on his nice Phantom camera.

    • James Heaton
      James Heaton 10 months ago

      I don't think any form of electronics in the ball could survive the hit, but perhaps a drone high enough in the sky with with a ball that's painted with something that glows in the dark, or failing that painted with something extremely reflective and give the drone a spotlight. Just have the drone fly up high enough and in the general direction the ball went and you'd be able to track it down pretty easily as long as it didn't land under a tree or something.
      Simpler and much cheaper than a golf radar or speed tracker.

I spent my life working in intensive care and emergency medicine teaching doctors and nurses but doing something besides medicine is really fun! I love using your projects to teach concepts and also to encourage females to go into math and science professions.

      The fact is that a human with much less power than this device (+ its accumulated momentum) has a club speed in the same order of magnitude.
      The speed of the club when played by a human is caused by the torsion of the shaft that acts like a spring, releasing energy at the impact. Here the stiffening of the shaft makes that impossible.
      Searching for the optimal control to input in order to maximize the speed of the club at the moment of the impact would be more interesting imo

      The golf ball would probably evaporate when re entering the atmosphere. Seriously, most meteorites just evaporate in the atmosphere before even getting a chance to hit earth.

    You've got to put a tracker in the ball so you can see how far they go

      This is completely different type of content compared to frequentupliad channels. Those channels are meant for people to have something fun to watch each day, while this is meant as a more informational fun video to watch

    I think it would have gone further with a stiffer shaft instead of using a reinforced sleeve. A XXXX stiff shaft would have allowed you to utilize the flex of the shaft for more power translation to the ball.

    Watching a rocket powered golf club smash through a water melon in slow motion was so surreal.

    I think it fell behind all those trees, near the base of the mountain because I saw it momentarily in slow mo after you lost track. I'm not sure though, it was too small for me to tell if it was a ball or not.

    He should return to this project and use golf balls with chips in them like Top Golf uses to track speed, distance, and even spin rate!
