    I never cared for the sticker decal that came with this kit, so I went with an Honest John look. It didn't have US ARMY lettering on Saturday, but it does now.

    Madcow Patriot 2.6" Fiberglass (K-150) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Madcow Rocketry

    MODEL NAME: Patriot 2.6" Fiberglass Also known as: 2.6" Patriot

    NUMBER: K-150

    Introduced:
    Final Year:
    Designer:

    Type: Scale
    Motor Mount: 1x38mm
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 33.75"
    Diameter: 2.6"
    Span:
    Weight: 32 oz

    Mfg. Description: ALL FIBERGLASS KIT
    High Power Rocket
    Pre-Slotted Fiberglass Airframe
    Fiberglass Nose Cone
    G10 Fins and Centering Rings
    Cut Vinyl Decal
    Nylon Shock Cord

    The PATRIOT is the U.S. Army's most advanced air defense system. Capable of defeating both high performance aircraft and tactical ballistic missiles, it is the only operational air defense system that can shoot down attacking missiles. A PATRIOT battery (i.e., the basic firing unit) consists of a phased array radar, an engagement control station, computers, power generating equipment, and up to eight launchers, each of which holds four ready-to-fire missiles. There are about 90 soldiers assigned to a battery, but three soldiers in the engagement control station are the only personnel required to operate the battery in combat. The first combat use of PATRIOT occurred in Saudi Arabia and Israel during Operation Desert Storm. (Madcow 2013 Web Ad)

    I started out with a Patriot kit and a box of parts from Semroc, and this is what happened. Instead of three tubes and two couplers, I used a single piece of tube; inside is a Semroc baffle. The engine is retained with a handmade twistlock, which seems to work pretty well; I've launched it five times with no difficulty.

    And of course, I never paint anything like I'm supposed to. :D I might have tried, if it weren't for the fact that the "decals" are nasty stickers. So I made my own decal and called it good.

    This is one of my favorite fliers... with the baffle, turning it around is quick, and it always flies well.

    I had a question about the twist lock, so here are the details. I took a half inch piece of BT-50, a BT-50 to BT-5 centering ring (a "flat" one from a pack of Custom brand rings I picked up at a hobby shop), and a BT-50 to BT-20 centering ring (an "AR" type ring). The 5-50 ring got glued into the tube flush with the end. The 20-50 ring got cut into about five pieces, the fifth being tossed. I glued two pieces to opposite sides of the engine tube, then cut away engine tube between the ring-segments to allow space to grab the engine. I should mention that the engine tube was constructed to allow the entire engine to be pushed into it, flush with the end, rather than the usual 1/4" overhang. The remaining two pieces of centering ring were glued into the BT-50 retainer ring. Placement was finicky, and I recall having a bit of concern that the retainer might accidentally get glued to the engine tube, but it all worked out.

    Later I added a bit of balsa to the engine tube as a twist stop. Makes it easier to tell if the retainer is installed correctly.

    Mine is the standard Estes Patriot with some upgrades.

    E Patriot A.jpg E Patriot B.jpg

    The 18mm engine mount is now 24mm
    The upper yellow tube became a payload section.
    You can see the vent holes hidden at the top of the tunnel decals (probably way too large) for an altimeter.

    The whole build is here:

    My Patriot from the early '90s. I added the conduit along one side to make it more scale-like, per what the Pro Series model looked like.

    Sure, you don't have to ask! It just seemed like a natural payload section anyway.

    Finally got some pictures of my bird. Used it for my Jr L1 cert flight about 2 years ago, but I don't have any pictures from there or any of the subsequent flights. Took these at the NSL this past weekend, and I'm really happy about the launch one.

    When I found it, the nosecone somehow ended up inside the booster, which was a bit funny. Otherwise good flight though.

    Jasper, I used the same kit for my L1 cert. Mine is a little overbuilt and will be used for my L2 cert as well. Went to about 600 feet on an H180W.

    My Estes PSII Scion/Leviathan modded into a Patriot, using upscale dimensions from my original Estes BT-60 Patriot. The original I added the conduit and slightly modified the decals to look more scale, then with the PSII I had the decals done less scale to resemble a stock Estes BT-60 version. Go figure.

    The Estes Patriot was the first rocket I made coming back from a temporary job at the US Space and Rocket Center (Space Camp) in college.
    Thanks to expanding gorilla glue and road trip damage, its fin alignment terrifies LCO's to this day.
    SAM.jpg SAM.5.jpg
    Since that was my first home built kit, I selected Madcow's 4" Patriot for Level 1 certification. Boy was I in for an education while learning how to mask and finish a large rocket. ~1360 ft on an H120, great certification flight.
