    A little bit larger than expected, especially as it was for a friend's little girl's 7th birthday.

    Impressive firework piece, a real wow for the crowd except for a few little girls crying in the background, oops!

    It takes a while to prep and needs two wireless firing modules cable tied to the frame to fire the 11 candles and allow it to spin without tangling any igniter wires, but worth it.

    Just did it manually with a 9v battery, much more exciting!

    Anyone got the re frills?

    Love it, and it reminds me that I never did find a suitable fountain for mine.
    I think it may have to take candles if I can't find something readily available, but it seems a waste (unless they spin too, of course).

    CF0018 - 18 Second prewired with an igniter fountain. Not seen anyone selling them, it was a 'had to be there purchase opportunity', I suspect now a discontinued product which came with the metal frame as a set, but I could be wrong. Also they require care as designated F4. If you go to YouTube Jinn Kyja (jk) has filmed a number of Retail alternatives including rocket motors to start the spin.

    A Hawk stick does fit in the 'feet' perfectly, but it's too smoky and a bit quick.
    TNT founts didn't give me the duration needed.
    Further experimentation is required.

    And I haven't forgotten those whistles, @Simon Weir, I just haven't thought of anything video-worthy.
    Other than dismantling my old rack and using various length tubes to alter the tone, if that would even work?
    See above point about further experimentation being required, and add better weather.

    Jinn Kyja (jk), knowing the whistles went to a good home meant everything to me; I know one day you will find a use, there is no time limit to inventing ... maybe dogger scarer or place inside different lengths of pipe to alter the pitch and create the first firework melody. Next time I see you I have other gifts to add to your workshop ... I mean offload my pyro rubbish, lol!
