Two thumbs down.
Good to hear. I was thinking of getting a kit or two from them soon.
My wife has no problem with my rockets or any of my other hobbies. I include her at the launches, etc and we make a day of it. We have a picnic on-site and afterwards on the way home we dine out at...
Been meaning to pick up a few for my next launch. Just ordered a 1/8", 3/16", and 1/4" from Amazon w/free shipping. Thanks for the link T-Rex.
We ditched our land line and went the cell route a few years ago due to convenience. Not big on talking on any phone but do send a text or two from time to time and check in on my favorite apps. I...
Hate to say but I will have to pass on this one. Maybe next month. :(
Nice build & finish. The V2's are one of my favorites.
It's a good idea. I put my info on my R/C Airplanes & helis too - ya never know.....
Have to check this out. Thanks for the heads up.
Finished sanding everything and applied one coat of primer. Sanded again and ready for a bit more filler & primer.
Nope - not for me.
The way I read & understand the NAR website what you came up with would be correct. But if you click on the "fax or mail application" there is not a family option - family is only offered on the web...
I have to go with motor. Ever since I read the 7th ed. handbook by G. Harry Stine - it just stuck. But I still catch myself saying engine sometimes.
I also was thinking the same thing a few months ago. Been a member of NAR since 98, even when I was not active in the hobby. Up until recently I had no interest in HP but that changed when I...
Looks like it will be a very interesting build. Make sure you post some pics of the first flight.
Congrats! Great flights.
I like it. Every fin lined up with my marks and only took a few seconds to CA them in place. The good thing is that they are straight and at a perfect 90 deg to body tube. Maybe after it wears a...
Next time I will coat the baffle ends with epoxy. Will see how long they last by not being coating the plates.
Ran a bit of CA around the forward end of the body tube to tuff it up a bit.
Fins cut out, stacked, and ready for sanding.
Using the cut-out from the instruction book - body tube marked for fin & launch lug alignment. First time I really used the fin alignment...
Coated inside of body tube with glue and inserted the completed motor mount assembly inside body tube. Kept the motor tube flush with body tube. Stood the completed assembly upright (aft end down)...
Congrats on your L1. I hope to do the same next week or at BattlePark on the 10th.
Just looked it up and I have a Bass Pro Shop about 2.5 hrs NE from me. If I head out in that direction I will check it out. Thanks for the heads up.
Thanks everyone for your input. I did go to Lowes and Dicks Sporting Goods looking around for a box. Didn't really find what I wanted. I'm not in any hurry so I will keep my eye out for what might...
Looks like about everything is in the bag.
Engine mount complete
Decided to give the Sunward baffle a try. Replaced one of the red tube couplers with the Sunward. Glued baffle...
I'm sure there are a few builds for the Estes Patriot on the forum but I decided to go ahead and add another.
Finally dug through the closet and unpacked my Patriot kit from Estes. I opened the...
I have heard that before from some others at a launch in the past. My little box and a Launch Pad. We usually get a good laugh out of it. But I can see that ain't going to work with HP.
Now that I am stepping up to high power and going for my L1 in a few weeks I need a good field box. My current box works great for low power but just don't have the room I am now needing. I like...
