Well, call me Doctor Frankeinstein, I have created another monster. I was just in Home Depot getting some X-mas shopping done (since my mom is not in the room at the moment it is safe to tell you all that I got her a Dremmel tool. She has wanted one for her soapstone carving for a long time, and of course I get to borrow!!), and lo and behold I saw some 8" sono-tube for about a buck a foot!!! So, I am going to save up some money andbuy 4 tubes, a lot of plywood, a couple yards of fiberglass, and some foam for the nose cone. I am going to glue two smaller peices of plywood together for the fins, and have some heavy fiberglass in between for extra strenth. My dad is going to be changing his guitar strings and I get the E string for hot-wiring the foam. The cone wont be exact, but I dont need it to. It will fly on anything from a J570 to an M1315. I am putting a 75MM motor mount in it so I do not get temped to start buying N2000s. I would loose all of my hard work on the rocket, because it would just flooaaat away.... Ill post the Spacecad file. It is really cool.... I cant wait to start it!
