We'll have to drag race Tony...here's mine. The colors look a little dark though, the red is closer to yours.
Nice job, as usual. I'll bring mine to the next launch and we can try for a 3 way drag race if Dan happens to come. It flies real nice on an E9-4.
Thanks Bob.Tony & Dan,
Your SLS Aero-Dart models look GREAT! Please post some pictures when you fly them.
I flew my SLS Aero-Dart with an AeroTech E15W motor at NARAM-49.
I really like the Semroc SLS series of kits.
We launched the Aero-Darts yesterday, both on E9-4's.
Bob and I were saying all day that Dan would show up right after we flew ours, so we waited until mid afternoon to fly.
But wouldn't you know it that's just what happened.
Bob's got off the pad just a little faster than mine (on the right).
But they flew almost side by side the whole flight.
And Bob stuck the landing.
As with all Semroc kits this is a straight forward build. The main difference is the changeable motor mount. The kit comes with a 24mm mount, and Semroc has a 29mm that you can get for it separately.Tony, any comments or insights into the build?
I think if you put a G in this rocket you might now see it again.I was just getting to my table after walking from the parking lot as Tony and Bob were ready to go...so I flew mine by myself on an E9-4 too. Here are some pix...
My parachute acted a little weird on the way down, like it had lost a shroud or something, but other than one section being slightly stuck to another it was fine, no melting or scorch marks. I also nailed my landing though not as dramatically as Bob did...when it landed one fin stuck right in the ground and kept the rocket standing. No damage, just a little dirt to clean off.
What a great flyer this is...I have the 29mm mount for it but I'm not sure I really want to put a G in this, but I would like to play with some composites at some point.
