This one had trouble ejecting at high altitudes. I live on the Lost Coast at sea level, and it did fine there, but in Colorado Springs, it wouldn't fully eject!Do you hate this rocket, or do you have this rocket? Only Rammstein knows for sure.
Except, I know that I've got a home built version of this rocket. And, I surely do not hate it.View attachment 114373
Its also a rear eject, for that smooooth feel at the nose cone. It's a BT-70 size, so yet again, I'll be using them mid-power engines. I need to find a better launch site with more acreage and fewer trees. Anyone in the Vancouver region of Washington state and have a secret launch facility that could be shared?
It was built from this design.

I had to extrapolate this one, but even with possible variances, I'm really happy with it.
My plan was to launch it just right, so that it misses the earth when it lands. Then, it wouldn't break nothin.Rear eject may be rough on those forks when the rocket descends nose first. Would an external shock cord mount allowing horizontal descent help? Maybe attached on the belly?
WHAT!!!This is not the Dynastar Firefox model.
I encountered an image of this one as part of Shrox' midpower rockets, captured in an image with a midpower X-3 and an SHX-15. Originally, I wasn't totally sure what it was, since it differed from the Dynastar Firefox. But, once I finally bought my Firefox kit from Dynastar, I was sure that I could make out the fox logo, the russian star, and the CCCP in the illustration. So, I built it as a Firefox, older style.
But, but, but...shrox said:WHAT!!!
The whole point of that one is the angle cut fuselage! I'm sorry, but this is a serious infraction, I may have to recommend you be restricted to 18mm....
Well, OK. You're not restricted to 18mm.
