The target launch is Oregon Rocketry's AP Showers in late April, in Brothers.You make it look easy! I think I will stick with G10. [emoji23] Are you thinking of any particular launch this year? I’d love to see her in person.
Thanks, Rich. I'll be at as many Oregon Rocketry events as I can make and Sod Blasters, but I will have to adapt down in motor to stay under the waiver at the Sod Farm. Will you make it to NXRS this year?Looking good so far Joey. Hoping to see this beastie live.
I don't see why not. You will need wet rated sand paper. There will be quite a bit of water involved if you start wet at this stage. I usually sand dry until 400 grit, and then it becomes worth the hassle because the water keeps the dust from clogging the paper.Pardon a dumb question . . .
Does anyone wet-sand their composites to prevent large amounts of dust and airborne particles ?
Jim, thank you for volume 2. I like the detail and generous sharing of your techniques. I saw your flight at Balls last year. What an incredible project.You might like the second article also, particularly about pulling tension while rolling the tube.
One trick that I never published was to use the tip of a chip brush (tap, tap, tap) on top of the peel ply. The pinholes vanish. Not sure this would work as well with two layers of peel ply.
