Does anyone have a link to find the instructions for the Big Daddy online? My son is off from school this week and I suspect he discovered his replacement 4 D engine Big Daddy project.

The first Big Daddy caught fire and burned up--all that was left was the parachute, nosecone, and shock cord. I figure my recommended steel mesh baffle didn't have enough room to cool the ejection gasses and the heat from the 4 D12 ejection charges concentrated by the mesh baffle ignited the engine tubes.

Anyway, any help would be appreciated!

I don't know about online, but if you can't find them anywhere else, email me (powderburner2@hotmail.com) and I will send you a copy

Karl,

No doubt about it--JimZ's is the best. Unfortunately, no Big Daddy! Usually a google search with the kit name and "jimz" gets right to it...

You might check out Ye Olde Rocket Shoppe - Scott has several PDF files that list all the Estes (past and present) and Centuri kits and tells where, if anywhere, you can download the plans. These lists cover Jimz, YORS and Shasta's sites. That and the Estes Nose Cone Reference have saved me a boatload of time!

I'm pretty sure I still have my Big Daddy instructions and decals. I'll have to scan them and send them to Scott.

I just got my latest order from BMS; included were the parts I need to modify my Big Daddy to use a 2 x E engine cluster, and still use the TTW fin mounts.

I had a pair of centering rings made of 1/8" lite ply to center a BT70 inside the stock BT100 airframe. Fits real nice! I'll just trim the fin tabs to attach to the BT70. I also got a pair of 1/8" lite ply centering rings to center 2 x BT50 in a BT70. Those will be my engine mounts. It's the best way I could think of to keep the TTW tabs easily and go with a 2 engine cluster on a four-finned rocket with TTW tabs.

On RockSim, I needed to add 2 oz. of nose weight to get a stability caliber of 0.62 with the engines loaded. According to Galejs, this should be fine (That caliber means that the CG is about 1.8 inches ahead of the CG). 2 x E9-6's kick it up to 1410'.

For the widest range of manufacturers for OOP plans online, visit Ye Olde Rocket Plans at http://plans.rocketshoppe.com

I also have a lot of Estes and Centuri plans online that aren't on JimZ's site.

If you visit my main site, Ye Olde Rocket Shoppe at http://www.rocketshoppe.com and look on the Estes & Centuri Kit Lists page, you'll find a new list for all the Estes kits that were made along with links to plans and catalog pages if they're available for the model you're looking for.

JimZ has a great site. I've taken up the slack where he's left off.
