Ok, I am going to build a rocket. It will be a 3-inch dual deploy with a 3d printed fin can. The tubing is 3 inch LOC tubing. I need to come up with a nose cone and a name.

I am asking for your help with a name and nose cone. Think COVID and medicine.

The best name and nose cone will get a bunch of 3d printed ejection charge canisters free of charge.

On the line:
10 1-gram canisters
10 2-gram canisters
10 3-gram canisters
10 4-gram canisters

Post your idea - deadline 1 October!

Elliptical cone with a goofy face painted on it, comically oversized mask parachute.

Case Count.

"3...2...1... Case Count is going up fast!
Case count is slowing down...
Looks like Case Count has peaked.
We've had an event and case count is coming back down steadily."

I am going to start this again - looking for a covid theme just to close this out. 42mm OD airframe - looking for nose cone and fin can idea. 10 - one gram ejection canisters per idea of design.

One question: Max overall length of rocket?

My NC and Fin can idea

The following (Simplified Chinese) characters as fin decals
蝙蝠

面具

Which is pronounced as
Biānfú

miànjù

And translates as
Bat
with
Mask

Yes, it's lame but.....

Are you 3D printing the nose cone or does it need to be a commercially available nose cone?

Name idea: Fist Full of Needles
