Stock build, but gave her some hot-rod flame decals.

I setup my BB with a teflon pompom to help the recovery wadding and decided to use a streamer instead of a chute. After a bunch of flights (14!), the streamer seems like the right idea since the rocket is very strong for its weight. My BB has survived numerous falls from altitude due to a jammed ejection charge and a couple times the streamer has not unrolled. The BB was one of my first rockets, I painted it like crap because I assumed I would lose it right away :p





I want to build another BB with a D engine mount and a decent paint job soon :)

The Baby Bertha is one of my favorite inexpensive rockets. I have one I built stock, the other has a 24mm MMT. It really takes off quite fast on a D12-7.

I think it would be neat to 2 stage one.

You could fill it up with concrete and use it as a paper weight....
