So now we've turned UFO into a huge whipper.  A whipper gives you way more power because the arm rotates 270 degrees before firing instead of 90 degrees.  The design also puts the counterweight up higher, giving it more potential energy.  Here's what it would look like cocked and ready to go:

Empty milk jugs filled with water make great treb practice.  Above, a jug explodes upon impact, leaving the remains that Steve is holding.  To the left is a picture of the whipper on release.  Obviously, we are releasing way too late as the CW has already passed completely through the structure and is hanging out the other side.  Hopefully we can get this fixed.
