The inside of the airframe tube was swabbed with yellow glue, the Kevlar was fished through the tube and the motor mount was slid into place with just a bit protruding from the aft end. The instruction call for the motor tube to be flush but I like to leave a bit hanging out.
On your next motor mount installation, try running the kevlar/shockline back thru the motor mount and out the tail end. This eliminates getting glue all over the kevlar as your installing the mount while allowing taught pressure to be applied to the line keeping it in the filed centering ring channel slot Once the glue has set up a little you can drop the kevlar/shockcord back thru the motor mount, out the forward end of the model.
Hope this helps.
Well, the reason for the reversed sticker is that when you fly it, it creates a hole in the quantum time/space barrier. So that when viewed 4th dimensionally it looks correct..
Seriously, that just may be an 'oops'..I will have to check my Mini Fanton to see if it is the same..Or I guess depending on what side of the rocket you are looking at you have either a Fantom or a motnaF..:roll:
I didn't spend the extra money for the flux capacitor option so time/space barriers should not be an issue.
I'd be curious as to what you have. I could see it being intended as I recieved it but it could be a mistake as well.
I went by the shop today and found that the very thick stickers had started to come up away from the curvature of the tube. I pressed them back into place and they would hold for a few seconds and then pop back up.
Any thoughts on the best adhesive to solve this problem?
