I searched the forum and didn't see any posts on this fun bird. It's OOP now, but was a fun build. I didn't like the stock paint scheme, so made up something more to my liking.

So here's mine. I can't be the only one here who has one.

I managed to get one just as they were announced as OOP.

I still have not gotten around to building yet.

The FFM is only single stage, although the design probably could be easily altered.

It can be modified to gap stage 18mm to 13mm. And I did. :)

Meet Fred'n'George. The lower, gunmetal part with the orange fins is the booster, George. The light blue part with the shark's teeth is the sustainer, Fred. George includes a stuffer tube and a coupler around which is wrapped a small Nomex streamer, providing at least some drag on the way down.

The forward fins on Fred had to be moved back a bit, and the nose cone has some epoxy and lead stuffed into it. Alone, Fred struggles into the air on an A10-3T; with George's help, it gets a lot further!

I would fear that Fred would be difficult to see in the sky, though the shark grin is a nice touch.
