just started my 2nd bull pup.
setting it up for a 24mm motor
Cs and Ds.
added a little more clay to the nose.
c/g in the same place as on the 1st one. (18mm)
is there something more i need to do for
the bigger motor ?

all it needs is a little paint and decals

love that rocket !
looks great and flys the same.

but need more power !

Looking Good Corpse.

Question , on my Kit build I noticed that my fins are placed higher from the tailcone compared to yours. Im pretty sure Ive placed my fins correctly, is there a reason why youve moved yours aft ?

the fins on the 24 mm motor bull-pup are in the same place as on my 18 mm motor one .
the 24 mm is cut down same (tail cone , my look smaller )
i put both at the end of the body tube.
the fish tail ( think that what they call it ) has been cut down
to fit the 24 mm motor

We went out with it today, it rocked! It was way up there but got stuck in a big tree. Other than this one in the tree we came home with everything else, some of them a little wounded but all should fly again.

Yep corpse:
I've always like the way my old Estes bullpup flies so much I decided to try a true scale Micro-Bullpup-b. here the unfinsihed,primed pic in my micro-tower. hope to have it finished for more flights this weekend:D
Side note: did you folks know the bull pups boattail is not a circular cone, but more of a tapered semi-pointed oval? another interesting boat-tail fact, it steps in for the body diameter.

I'm thinking about a scratchbuilt bullpup (2.6 BT) and was thinking of ways to do the boat-tail. I'm thinking I can cut down an Estes PNC 80 NC, which should work out well.
Attached a pic of Peter Alway's that describes the boat-tail that Micro is talking about.

Why did you leave off the upper (canard) fins? It's not a bull pup without those fins! :eek: :p :D Nice rocket though! Hope you get it back! :p :)
