As Burt Rutan as making history with SSO: I couldn't help but wonder if it would be possible to create a micro-maxx flying version of this historic little Rocketship.
Building from the Test flight photos and info obtained on their website I drew up this plan and built my BT-5 1:109.055 scale version of the vehicle. this one was a BEAR to get to fly correctly ended up at 10.8g most of which is nose weight LOL!!! Every time I bring it out to fly people can't believe something that heavy is litterally out of sight almost at ignition. We usually only get to "see" the model as it's fluttering down below at 1/2" x 10" Yellow Teflon wadding/streamer.

Here's my Estes SS1 kit. Booms were laminated with 110lb card stock and have held up great to over a dozen flights. Someday I may redo the peal and sticks with some actual water slides.
