Please have a look at the 2 attached pics, can this be right? Both are from The Launch Pad, one is a Martel and the other is a Bullpup. In both, the end of the motor mount is 2" from the end of the paper body tube. Isn't this dangerous, with the body tube possibly catching on fire when the motor ignites? In any event, what is the purpose of this type of mount? I got these in a box of rockets I purchased. The instructions for the Martel indicate the motor mount is supposed to be this way, in fact there is supposed to be a paper tail cone attached to the bottom of the body tube. The instructions for the Bullpup do not call for this type of mount, there is supposed to be a plastic tail cone and the end of the motor mount is supposed to be 2" from the end of the tail cone.
