Good build. Great craftsmanship. If it flies as good as it looks, you have a winner!

I see you live in the land of white winter and green winter. I have visited your fine country on several occasions!

Thanks! It should fly on a G but it wont be fast, hopefully my 2-meter rail will help it on a straight path.

Nice you have visited.
The swedish winters can be great but i defenitly prefer the green summers though hehe. Crazy admounts of snow here right now. Alot of the trains/subway here in Stockholm is canceled, busses delayed, so if you visit again you should come in the summer ;)

........... so if you visit again you should come in the summer.;)
I have. On one trip I went through the Volvo truck factory in Umea .[did I spell it right?]

Being so close to the Arctic I mentioned to my guide how cold it was in July. He replied to me ...."we don't have a real summer here, only white winter and green winter."

O C at night and 60 C during the day.

I did not know I was going to be that far north and the 24 hrs of daylight also was a surprise !

Keep building and flying!

Beautiful rocket, and a great first flight!

What material did you use to create your fin alignment guide in the first set of pictures? How did you cut it out?
Looks like a piece of tile.Alex

Thanks :)

Dont know exactly what its called in english, its basicly a thick piece of paper. It was a pain to cut but it was the only thing i had at home that i could use ;)
A small kitchenknife with a serrated blade worked pretty good if i remember correctly.

It would have been easier with cardboard or somthing like that.

Thank you.
This winter has been quite cold, but thankfully spring is coming now :)

I really liked building this kit and can recommend it. Good quality, and pretty easy to build exept mayby the canard fins that is a bit tricky to line up with the rear fins..

I fly the PML 1/4 Scale Patriot so I hear you on the quality of PML kits. The Patriot is a nice flyer as well, maybe a great next project for you! :)

Never seen a tripod used that way to launch. Ever any burn on the legs from the motor? What about stability? Nice looking rocket too by the way!

Its nice but a bit heavy for a G mayby. Me wants L1 :) but its not very easy to get here in Sweden with the very small number of people that actually got L1/L2.

Hopefully someday !

Gary,

I have only used the tripodrail once but it seems pretty stable. The rail has a steel "spike/point" in the end to put in the ground so it does not move. I did not notice any burns or marks on the tripod after launch and it didnt budge/move but i dont know how well it would handle large HP motors. It all fits into a bag with the rest of the launch-equippment. Portability is nice :)
