    Like to experiment with Arts cardstock creations. I got the idea for a pair of fuzzy dice to hang on the rearview mirror of my Blue Van.
    A couple cardstock micro Qubits some blue flocking and a black magic marker later I had the Dice. A short length of bow string nylon with a couple skewer toggles attached I had my hanging set.
    They fly individually but alway hang together LOL!

    The other two Qubit shapes are the Scimitar, and the Black painted Stealth Qubit.
    Fun with cardstock.

    I am launching tomorrow at a site that is very restricted in size for a few months. Having ZERO MMX rockets or experience with them , I printed out Art Applewhite's QuBit Dicey and also made a Psycho Qubit with photoshop... No idea how they'll fly but they were fun and quick MMX builds.

    Thanks Art for the cool plans.

    Well, there was no painting involved since I got the neon green/yellow version, but here is my Art Applewhite Super Stealth. One of my favorites and probably the one in my fleet with the most flights just because I always get it back.

    My daughter's Girl Scout Qubit. This one has flown close to 10 times now, and still looks like it can go many more times. I helped her troop earn their Aerospace badge by teaching them about rocketry and helping each scout build their own Girl Scout Qubit.

    They loaded them up and flew them at a club launch last fall, and if the volume of the squeals was any indication, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I really should have grabbed some video of that.

    This free MicroMaxx powered Dicey QBit was a hit with the kids. Again cheap cheap cheap! Free on Art's website! Missed the launch shot completely. BTW: The motors stay with these.
