Automotive Air compression firing mechanism

  1. Jul 18, 2017 #1
    Hello,
    I am high school student working on a project to design an air cylinder, which would fire seed pellets from the drone at specific time intervals with sufficient pressure to embed them into the soft soil.
    I looked up on the Internet about airguns and other stuff but couldn't find anything very much relevant. Would be very grateful if anyone could help.

    What, specifically, are you asking for help with?

    Someone may wanna outline a general mechanism and the equipment needed (an electric valve maybe to open and close after each second to drop the pellets possibly)

    You haven't found any good mechanisms like that? I'm hesitant to hand you something you could/should research on your own. Part of your project should be looking at multiple common mechanisms and evaluating them for the best one to apply to your needs.
