2.6" Neptune V
Well, I decided to make another stab at a build thread, though I kind of abandoned my last attempt (but not the project itself). This one will be a BT-80 based scratch build called the Neptune V. It will fly on 24mmx95mm engines, to about 650 feet on an Estes E9. The top part comes down on a 10" chute with a spill hole, and the bottom part on an 18" chute.
