I wanted to create a remote fired trigger for a spud gun so I can trigger it remotely.
Ideally I'd like to use a spark plug to fire because it should work well for gas mixtures but the trigger is pretty small/simple. Basically it's a a little remote box with a push button trigger that runs off of batteries.
It has a light, arm switch, and push button that triggers a relay but I currently don't have anything connected on the relay switch end.
Would it be possible to charge up some caps and get enough juice to bridge a spark plug with a small battery source (4 AAA or AA batteries) or would I need to step it up to something bigger (lipo or lead acid).
Note: I have used caps for filtering before but never for charging/discharging.
Just wanted to clarify. I know that a gas grill push-button igniter is a viable option but I'm looking for something more reliable. Ie, an igniter that I'm 100% positive it'll fire a good spark when I push the button. Check out "Tater gun Fires a Hunert yards" to see what I mean by unreliable.
