    My Cyclotron was the vehicle of dashe L2 dreams. It was an easy build and was quite dependable with H and I motors. I tried to used it for an L2 qualification flight and made a lousy motor choice. It looked really nice for the first few dozen feet as it went up. It was much less nice as it disintegrated after that.

    I went with a simple scheme of charcoal and bronze and printed the LOC decals out on label paper. It wasn't the best in the world but I wanted to try it and see how it went.

    LOC Cyclotron (PK-47) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] LOC/Precision

    MODEL NAME: Cyclotron Also known as:

    NUMBER: PK-47

    Introduced:
    Final Year:
    Designer:

    Type: Sport, Tubefin, Payload
    Motor Mount: 1x38mm
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 57"
    Diameter: 3.1"
    Span:
    Weight: 35 oz

    Mfg. Description: The CYCLOTRON gives the stable tube fin design a new dimension with the addition of LOC's exclusive airframe reducer and a payload section. Built to fly on F50 and G80 composite motors, we have increased the motor mount to 38mm to accommodate motors through I (we have reports of folks flying on J570 though we don't recommend it ourselves.) The CYCLOTRON is a very stable motor eater!

    All LOC/PRECISION "PK-XX" kits include heavy duty airframe and motor mount tubes, high-grade precision-cut plywood fins, centering rings, rip-stop nylon parachute or streamer, nylon elastic shock cord and mount, launch lug, polypropolene nose cones and instructions. (LOC 2012 Web Ad)
