Im building the Loc Precision expediter.Do you have any suggestions on the build?The motor mount is already epoxied into the rocket.Alex
Hi Gabe,Thats one heck of an Expediter, Terry CF is the whole build CF, or just the fin can? Btw, thats pretty cool.
I think i am going to just friction fit the nose cone right now with some tape sense it is not duel deploy.AlexWhat are you doing about the nose cone attachment? I always dremel a hole in the shoulder and then attach an eye bolt with a large washer and nut inside on my PML rockets.
I think he meant how are you going to attach your recovery harness to the nosecone. I am unfamiliar with the Expediter, but I am assuming that the harness is attached to the nosecone. I have stopped using the plastic eyelets that are formed on nosecones because they often break in non-perfect deployments. (Deployments that are too fast.) So I have either used a bulkhead or drilled a hole for a metal eyebolt attachment.I think i am going to just friction fit the nose cone right now with some tape sense it is not duel deploy.Alex
Bondo is ok to use...but I like to use Durham's Rock Hard Water Putty and add some Titebond Wood Glue into the Durham's and it works well for me. More glue added to the mixture then more sanding required.Im on the way to get some Bondo.I filled the deep spirals and that worked out fine then there were smaller ones and i thought they were ok but they did not fill with Primer so now i have to use bondo to fill them and the seam on the nose cone and air frame reducer.Alex
