Building this for L1 cert. Noticed all the fins are warped. Tried straightening them with a steamy iron. It straightens them at first, let them dry overnight between 2 mirrors and some weights, still warped. Use them or ask for replacements?
Warping is common with wood products which are sent from a place of one humidity to a place of another. If the warping isn't too bad you should be able to pull it out but you really have to go past straight so it returns to straight.Im leaning that way too. Bought all the supplies to build a perfect rocket. Even a large guillotine fin jig. Might as well wait and put on straight fins. Is this common? Had 3 Estes kits with warped fins that I ordered around Christmas.
If it's still tacky it isn't fully cured. Plus, 30 min epoxy works OK is not necessarily the best option for glass. I usually use the poly(whatever it is) resin.Yeah. The hobby store only had 30 min epoxy so thats what I used. Asked a friend and he said Ill just have to work fast.
