My rocket dubbed "one shot deal" is ready to begin it's construction.


Once again, here is the rocksim file.




More information to come as I receive the parts!

Okay, Here is an update.

My dad very precisely cut slits in the tube with an X-acto knife. I didn't trust myself to do it:roll:


Attaching the first fin.

Attaching the last fin.

Finished booster.

I think it looks pretty sinister. :dark: That big gap at the coupler/baffle will be covered by the fiberglass.
Then it's off to paint.

Happy Valentine's day :wave:

We got the tube fiberglassed, it being our first time doing so, I'm quite confident we are going to need some bondo :D

Looks nice, kinda resembles The EGE's machnum force, but one question upscaler, what it's the purpose of this? Machbusting, sport, alltitude.....

PS looks like we have all started keeping track of our motor usage :D

I just designed it because I decided I wanted another bird is all. Rocksim says it'll push mach but I doubt it will get that close. Fiberglass just in case.

I really built the rocket around my 29/240 case. H power baby.

I've been keeping track of my motor usage by section,spring/fall, on YORF for a while. Figured I'd bring it here as well

Quick update.
I sanded a couple times with 150 grit. Then went on up to 220. I'll finish with 600.

Some parts came out spectacular!


Others did not...


It's looking like we'll need less bondo than I originally thought.

Get the 29/360 and you can break Mach with the I200 and H275 ;) anyway looking nice!

I built it specifically not to fit the 29/360. I knew I would be tempted and figured it wasn't even worth it. :bangpan:

Not completely sure. Probably a few more weeks.

I want to order some materials for my 29mm deuce.

Because it's awesome?
I had a sneaking suspicion that had something to do with it.


Not to mention, if I can make it to octoberfest, ben and i are looking at the possibility of a drag race.

Did you cut your fins from G10 stock, or did you buy them pre-cut? What thickness are they?

It's looking good btw.

They are standard PML fin-a-09. They are 1/16" thick. Good price and they are very sturdy.


Thank you!

It uses the canted motor mounts, yes, but it was a ripoff of the original (the Deuce).
I love how the deuce seems to hijack every thread on here.

It's just that big of a deal :D

back on topic.

FGing the airframe made it wider than the base of the nosecone. Is that a problem?

You could pick up some plain weave Fg cloth and fiberglass the NC to even thinngs out, If you don't it will just induce some extra drag

No need to FG the nose cone. I think the extra drag will do it some good. I don't want it to bust 700mph. Besides, few coats of primer and the dark pearl purple will hide it just fine.

It's nothing that serious. It's only, MAYBE 1/32nd of an inch. Nothing too extreme. but you can tell it's not a perfect fit if you get close enough.

Oh so about the thinkness of cardstock, but when you are going 700mph that drag is exponentialy increased, why not just sand the forward part of the BT down a little?

Well, with the weight still needing to be added with FG near the fins. Not to mention the paint. It won't be hitting 700 mph. I may add a little filler on the NC and sand it smooth against the NC. Also, there will be a bit of drag coming from the rail buttons. I think she will be safe.
