from a distance, i thought it was an 80lb co2 tank...
turns out it was a fiberglass tank/cylinder about 8" in diameter and close to 5 feet long!

WooWhoo!

best thing of all...

500 psi burst strength!
pretty stout tube!
maybe a bit heavy, but i'll do something crazy like one 54mm central motor and 4 38mm around it for a nice cluster...
:D

Nose, recovery gear and system, a 152mm MMT/fin can and a Loki O-27000, and you got a rocket.

That's the craziest, most scatalogical thing I've ever read.

Does anyone else understand what he was saying? :confused:

he's saying to make it with vectored thrust inherent in the design like the deuces wild, etc.

not a bad idea, but i really don't see much point in wasting power that way, except to fly on a smaller field for the deuce/tres, i imagine. with something this big, it's gonna go *up there* anyway, so might as well take it to the limit...

Sweet, what a find. Can't wait to see your design concept.

You gotta name it the Acid Neutralizer! That would be perhaps the best rocket name I've ever heard. And you have to love the LCOs face when he has to say weird rocket names.

that's the funniest thing i've heard!
the Free Acid Neutralizer!

so, i'm thinking of leaving the threaded end alone and using the threads for motor retention. it might make it too hard to build though.
