Airsoft Innovations impact grenade catches on FIRE!

So I was at Siege Airsoft tonight. I through my Airsoft Innovations Tornado grenade around a corner and whatched a giant fireball 4 to 5 feet in diameter. After the fireball! The game was promptly stoped. The Tornado still had a little flame comeing out of the bb ejecting port. the size of a candle flame. fortunetly there were several gopro's recording at the time . But now I'm down a tornado, and was woundering what people's experience has been with AI's and the likelihood of getting my tornado replaced? The fire ball was pretty amazing though!

Carl did mention something about a flash device, but i don't think this is what he had in mind.

Wow.

I've never seen anything like that happen. Pressurized propane venting plus a spark (static or friction) might result in something like that. But that's at least one in a million since these things aren't made for combustion.

I am pretty blown away, I have been around Carl of AI for a lot of years, I have been present when he tested some of his craziest devices that now live in a box labeled "too dangerous" but this, this is nuts! One in a million throws, maybe ten million...

Where did the spark come from? Friction?

Email AI, if you havnt already, they will take care of you, I am confident in that.

They will replace it, contact via website and they will open a RMA.

You'll ship it out on your expensive, but they will ship[ it back on their expense.

I had an issue with mine, and the replaced mine with a brand new one, and I asked for a new color shell, and they accommodated!

+1000 awesome points to AI.

Must have been some sort of ignition source right next to it...

softer ferrous metals hitting concrete can cause sparks.
I'd say maybe an AEG motor, but the ignition was right at impact, so most likely something on the ground.

Next time do it with MAP gas, it'll leave a wicked black mushroom cloud XD

I was closet to the impact, although I felt the heat there was not much else to it.
