Re: Airframe choices (or why you should consider rolling your own airframes)

What they said. For non-critical diameters I just use PVC pipe, but sounds like you want to go MD. ...Nothing long enough to roll on. Is 915mm too short? You could get two PML tubes and carefully join them. https://ausrocketry.com.au/couplers/phenolic-coupler/ctf-1-5-36.html or there's 1220mm BT: h...

Re: Airframe choices (or why you should consider rolling your own airframes)

I've been looking high/low for a supplier of tubes that could sell me something to use as a Mandrel - 38mm. AusRocketry sell couplers, but all small sizes. Nothing long enough to roll on. I've always used phenolic and bluetube "motor mount" tubes sourced from Blake. As OTT said, drop Ausr...

Re: 2k 2 pack in a can

I suspect it would be somewhere around 9,000 feet on a H160.

Re: 2k 2 pack in a can

Looks pretty darn slick, how high did it go? I probably should have done that for my PP flight. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/toNigKgG6N_A-aFS9dmBZUrpsrNEGFOldqFi11XsSRuSrTDGXsWRRpISDmjMXFwAQcaK_mc0PiLtDyuadkLaB4gwIsnIWPyCJ4PimKVYBQEpvk0sbpWtxO31Oixmy-DwqNlg3xulgVA=w805-h330-no Should be fun wh...

Re: 2k 2 pack in a can

Heh, as per usual Bunnings comes through with average products at a premium price! Here's the MTN nozzle range; they cost $0.50 per. http://www.thebutchershop.com.au/shop_online/art_supplies/aerosol_paints/nozzles/mtn_caps/ And here's the full nozzle range. http://www.thebutchershop.com.au/shop_onli...

Re: 2k 2 pack in a can

Hi all, I thought I'd provide a quick update to the thread. I used the 2 pack in a can system to clear coat my 29mm CF bird on the Wednesday afternoon before WWW2018. It was a bit of a rush job; I'd only painted the nose cone on the weekend before with MTN 94 Vivid Red. I wanted to give the underlyi...

Williams "Wildfire" Westernationals 2018 photo and video thread

Afternoon all, I figured I'd start a new thread for photos and videos from WWW2018. I took a fair amount of photos, a few of which I'll post here. Below each photo group is a link to my Google Photos albums if you'd like to see more photos or download a higher resolution copy of an image. FYI if the...
