So, I leave at 7.30am tomorrow and I'm currently gluing the launch lug on a project. It's probably not the smallest rocket that will fly, but it's in the contest.

Im trying to do a minimum dia. (29mm), and I'm still working on those self-destructing CF fins. i keep on sanding em too much. :(

Conical urethane nosecone, roughly 1m phenolic tube (not the best choice, i know...), G80NT motor.
And a PML 29mm Callisto
It's pronounced /təˈmeɪtoʊ/ not /təˈmɑːtoʊ/

Favourite Rocket(s): The ones that have a problem with the recovery system :mrgreen:

I've had to drop my plans for staging as well as flying a single stage 54. Not enough time with my daddy day care duties not to mention my woes with rolling airframes that are either too small or too loose. :? All that said I'm bringing a 38mm to fly on a J510 and a 75mm to fly on a M2250. The 38 was going to be the sustainer in the staging stack so I am pleased I'll be able to have a shakedown flight before attempting to use it as a sustainer.


75er mk. II

Not long now!!! :D
