    So finally, I've finished painting my Onyx, so i decided to upload a few pictures... Also, I've finished filing the 29mm motor retention clips out of 1/16" aluminum sheet. Due to its amazing color scheme, I call it the "maniacal zebra," and I plan to add Red Arrow Hobbies 12" and 18" payload bays to fit a keychain camera. I'll keep uploading pictures as the build runs along.

    Here's some for starters.

    Very nice--you have my condolences. The Onyx is a great classic. I lost mine on a maiden flight in "92. It appears that it is a difficult rocket to find--especially in tall grass. I have been fighting the urge to replace it for many years--I am about to give in and buy another--I really miss my Onyx.

    I started construction on it back in 1997.
    I finally flew it this year on a K 1100 from 1998.
    There were suppose to be three I 200 but they never lit.

    How about a slightly stretched, glassed fin can, zipperless Onyx designed around a 29/240 case? I have said it many time before, I love the Onyx.
