Nope. HERC is the 3rd Saturday which is this Saturday. Whitakers is on the 24th. So you see, I'll be attending TWO launches this month.Originally posted by pdooley
I thought you guys were going to Whittakers(sp) this weekend..
If not, I best finish my new launcher and get some stuff done.
Hopefully won't have to do Friday-at-midnight painting like last time!!

Nah. I'll bring it for the locals to check out. I have to save the tragedy or glory for the masses at Whitakers.Originally posted by pdooley
oops, oh yea, Eugene, I will bring SBB this Saturday.
I would really like to see your Max Gyroc. Are you flying it Sat?
Cool rocket and i love the Praetor influenceOriginally posted by pdooley
Well, after reading the recent 13mm motor mount and Preator threads, I kit bashed a spare Quest Icarus laying around...
I didn't really like the Icarus model, mainly due to the fin design. The Preator inspired me.
Good eye! Yep, I guess the grain is slighty off, but didn't cause a problem. After the lawn dart, 2 of the fins separated clean from the body tube with no damage.Originally posted by stymye
I notice in the first pick the grain appears to be aligned with the trailing edge but with the shape probably doesn't matter much..
is it repairable?
hard to say, but i've seen most every size motor cato from time to time... if the motor (B6) burned and was ejected upon ignition I would say that you suffered a blow-through on the motor (a soft cato, as it were).Originally posted by pdooley
Well, the little guy got a couple 13mm flights with A10's before I got tired of it.
I pulled the mini mount out and attempted a multi stage flight C11/B6.
The staging was done similar to the D/C staging in the Commanche.
Not sure what happened, but the 18mm mount burned and the motor ejected, resulting in a lawn dart.
Either the C11 was too hot during stage seperation or the B6 CATO'ed.

Nice job on the rebuild. Looks even better than the first one.
