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.

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!
