    Chuck,

    Pics of the areas in question would be great, to help us to visualize the problem.

    Thanks,

    Dave F.

    Dave I posted pics of the bolt and nut assembly, the coupler (AvBay) where they will be attached when the airframe slides on and the inside of the coupler where the nut assembly will be.

    Chuck,

    What are the End Plates of the Av Bay like ( materials, etc ) ?

    What is the "force-bearing structure" of the Av Bay for handling Recovery stresses ? Are the End Plates "load-bearing" ?

    I have a theoretical "vision" of All-Thread being used to retain the End Plates, but it is in the early, "nebulous" phase at the present.

    Yes, it will add mass but, at this point, it is merely a concept.

    At this point, is actual Bolt placement the issue or interference from the "flange" on each Bolt ?

    This rocket is so big, that if you launch it, it'll have to have a seperate "Launch Thread"!

    It’s all good! Got the beginning of the Class 3 paperwork submitted.

    I haven’t started yet on the final build of the rocket but keep thinking about what needs to be done. Once started it should take 1-2 weeks to complete.

    Of course will need to test the ejection charge cannons so that will be cool.

    Thanks for asking Dave!
