This will be a build thread for my latest project which I have affectionately named Der Viper Max III. It is for one of the EMRR Challenge requirements. The basic components are:

~ BT-60 about 16". This is from another rocket that suffered a devastating crash.
~ PNC-60.
~ 3 BT-20 about 5" for motor mounts.
~ 3 Red Max fins.

This of course will be an unholy combination of the Der Red Max and LOC/Precision Viper III.

In what might be the slowest build thread ever . . . . . :rolleyes:

Here are the fins attached to the MMT tubes. They are otherwise regular-sized Red Max fins that I lengthened about a quarter of an inch on the root edge to compensate for being in the groove of the motor tubes.

I added some pieces to the motor mount so as not to have to put in glued-up tissue.
