So here it is a new Nike X kit. I haven’t built a LPR c motor kit in about twelve years. Saw it at Hobby Lobby and snagged one after work.

Motor mount tube. And it sure is a long motor mount!

Here's an Open Rocket file I did for the Nike X. I plan on flying anything from C6-5 to the AT D13W-4.

Now all it needs is the launch lugs and paint.

Looking good. Going to do any fillets :p :).

Sometimes it is relaxing to do a small kit with minimal stress and thought.
