And, anyone have any ideas why the motor tube is so long? 2-3 times longer than other 18mm motor tube I've built......Originally posted by eugenefl
Any ideas as to why the heck that thing is so long?
I am quite certain that you could get by with two launch lugs, about 1/4" long each, mounted approximately 3 or 4 inches to each side of the center of gravity for a Big Bertha and have no problem whatsoever.Originally posted by Steward
Is there any reason why you couldn't split the launch lug into two pieces? There are other rockets close to or bigger than a BB, and have split lugs...just wondering....
It may have something to do with the Ranger kit (K-6).Originally posted by Fore Check
The 5" lug is for the whole "big and burly" marketing thang that Estes had goin' on with the original bird.
