Hummmmm! Lets see NC might be a problem,Red would be a very nice color. What size motor A B C No Better use an D no guts no Glory . Now how do I attach the Fins . Recovery is a big problem streamer or chute . Launch lug what type glue should I use? well what the heck just go for it . Well as you can see I'm having one heck of a time .
What should I do ?????
I've never done one of these before. I can see right now I need your help :confused:


P.s Yes I know this should go some where else but I could not resist.
The Big Bertha is actually ready for flight as is!!
It requires mechanical means of propulsion using kenetic energy.
The Big Bertha is hand launched with a swift upward motion of the arm and a flick of the wrist.
Recovery is done through the use of a catching mechanism.
Follow the flight path with your eyes and attemtp to intercept with your mouth, tounge extended (much like a frog catching a fly)
The Big Bertha is a great flier but I can usually only get one flight from each one so many are needed.:D
