Idea for third flipper


Recommended Posts

A third flipper placed somewhere in the centre of the playfield "dropped"

Meaning it sits vertical with pivot point at the top end.

The left flipper button makes it flip up wards to the left side and the same on the right side.

Probably been done before.

I can't work out how you will be able to control its action for both directions (2 coils) and also what if you get a person who double flips or worse the old kiddie double flip repeatedly.

Twin coils back to back with the plunger between the two coils in the rest position.

 

A linkage can come out the center of the plunger connected to the flipper pawl.

 

Instead of one spring, use two, one in each direction, to return the plunger to the middle off position.

 

Both flippers hit at once will stall the flipper. I'd use electronics so as to apply only a pulse to either coil and only one coil being able to pulse at a time.

 

Love the idea by the way. Is it OK if I use it?.
