I am building my 2nd ARCAS (the first one was over 15 years ago), and when ordering stuff I decided to throw in a bag of 2-56 nylon screw shear pins to experiment with. However, I did not use shear pins of any kind on my first ARCAS, and I'm not sure exactly how to make use of them! So a few questions from a mid-power almost-newbie...
- If I use 2 pins to retain my nosecone (rocket is being converted to dual-deployment) until the proper time, how does one go about removing the sheared-off portion of the screws after deployment???
- Since the main body tubes are a paper fiber, what do people use to reinforce the holes in the body so they don't elongate with use? Thin CA adhesive?
