    I just keep getting more and more curious as to how this is possible. Kinda looks like a Roman candle. How much distance does it get? Any residue?

    Nicely done man. Hope you're doing this safely!

    @crumdum I'm having some trouble uploading vids from my phone. I'll get it worked out soon.

    This is as safe as it can be. Obviously, there's fire involved- so there's always some danger. I didnt want a capsule or reservoir of flammable liquid on me, so a stream of fire is out. This little guy however, will be a fun little toy.
    No residue, depending on the load, I can get around 20 ft, but it burns so fast it appears to only go a few feet sometimes. It's wireless, so I can trigger it from wherever, hence standing back for the first few.

    To be honest it would be pretty easy to have this work. You could get the guts of a powered water gun or spray gun that shoots X feet and fill the resorvoir with alcohol. Personally I would get the powered spray gun because it would be shorter ranged...bigger effect...and easier to control. The alcohol would be flammable but not nearly as explosive.
