    I recently crashed my modified(29mm instead of 4 24mm)Patriot, most of the lower fin can survived. I have parts to rebuild it, but no plans. My desktop is down to be able read jimz's tifs. My mobile cannot read them. I need both body tube lengths. THANKS!

    The tif files on JimZ's site don't list the lengths of the body tubes. John Brohm's body tube reference shows a blank line for the #2066 Patriot. Your best bet is for someone with the kit to post some measurements.

    28.625" OAL of 3" airframe, took the measurement of my PS1 Patriot that has not flown yet (I didn't build it, just inherited it). Sorry I don't know where the joint between the two sections is because the model is built well enough it hides the lines...

    Thanks! Watch those instructions, the motor block placement was before modern 3.75" E9/12's came along. That's why mine is now a 29mm. I bought it off ROL years ago. Edit: If I had read, not skimmed your post I would have registered "built". The blocks are already there!

    I did! I wanted to document the PS Patriot as it was before I started mangling it in an attempt to put it together

    Ha. I've seen your work, doubt if you can mangle anything. I would use your package for my own clone, if I hadn't already built one. Used stock, off the shelf components. Laters.

    Yes a very nice package. That appears to be the only plans out there with dimensions. I am going to be able to salvage 15 3/4" of the fin can, will need to add 12 7/8" to repair. Will move anchor point to match. Giving recovery a bit more room.

    Thanks!

    That would be awesome.
    Interested to see what Estes does with both the Gemini Titan and the Mercury Atlas on rerelease.
    Wonder if they will go with a 29mm on the Atlas, down scale the kit or do an exact copy

    I think 29mm would be a bit much for the Atlas, unless they get much sturdier materials
