I have this kit and if you build it well (good techniques mostly) you can put some big motors in this. I have personally flown up to a G80 in the stock kit! (Could go bigger)I just got a Lil Nuke kit. Very nice materials, body tube, CRs and fins are well constructed. I'm curious to hear from other people who have built or are building this kit as well as flying experience.
Yes the kits are much nicer now!Very nice paint job and radiation symbol. Most likely I will get an Aero Pack engine retainer and perhaps the 24-29mm adapter. The only other modification I will make is to use rail buttons instead of launch lugs. Loc has stepped up some of their kits. Better shock cords, eye hooks, through the wall fins.
Thrust curve can help with that as well but I am a sucker for cad stuff so I use rocksim and get awesome results-open rocket has equivalencies i hearEver since I found out from Kurirns post that Open Rocket can load Rocksim files, I have been using Open Rocket to get an idea of what motors to use for the Lil Nuke and a couple of other Loc kits I have.
A lot of the college teams use Open Rocket. In addition to being free, I have received feed back from some of the students that they simply like it better. I recently downloaded the trial version of Rocksim. What I like about it is the animation feature. I did use Thrust Curve to select a motor for my L1 flight. We are fortunate to have these resources available to us.Thrust curve can help with that as well but I am a sucker for cad stuff so I use rocksim and get awesome results-open rocket has equivalencies i hear
