Re: Scratch built X Wing

You don't need the ejection charge to eject anything so you could put an epoxy plug in the front end of the motor. This way, when the ejection charge ignites it all comes out the nozzle not out the front end.

Thankfully we have come a very long way from the "Go or Blow" days of the early 1960's.
