Here is my Loc Mini Magg with an awesome set of stickers. Thanks again Mark.

I think I have seen a "Red Bull" mini magg out there somewhere (maybe Mike Gross) we need to get together to have a drag race!!!

"Jagerbomb"= A glass of Red Bull with a shot of Jager dropped into the glass....enjoy

Just keep in mind, Red Bull was born to fly. Let me know where we can do it. I'll be at Thunderstruck in Indiana next month or Mid West Power in October.

I thought it was yours!!! I saw it in a earlier picture from a past MWP (it was next to a ghost....so I figured it was you)

I will 100% be at MWP8. I dont know if I will make Thunderstruck.

Post some up close pics of that thing. I was going to do a 1/2 red bull and 1/2 Jager. paint. But after Mark came up with the big logo for the fin-to-fin, I decided to keep it all black and orange.

Yep that was my Casper the Ghost. I cut those Red Bull stickers out by hand. I wish I knew Mark back then. He has done some awesome work for me.

WOW!! they look great. It looks like I may be able to make it to Thunderstruck after all. I will keep you posted. What motors do you use for the mini magg and do you have any nose weight. (rocksim says all "stubby" rockets are unstable)

are you preforming the base drag trick on them?

no? and I'm not sure what that is. I have only been (back) into building rockets for about 8 months and still figuring out all the "stuff" rocsim can do. I bought it to help me when I built an upscale redmax (just wanted to make sure it would fly since I used it for my L1 cert at MWP7)

other than basic rocket design, I dont use rock sim to its full potential.

so a search here or in the archives. There is a nice thread and tip to help rocsim with base brag onstubby rockets. Its essentially an "invisible" conical nosecone placed on the aft end of the rocket to help "trick" Rsim.

When i get home today I'll get a wieght on the nose cone. Remember a short rocket only needs about 1/2 a caliber. Let me know what motors you want to race on.

Griffin,
I checked the weight of my nose cone, it's 1.2 lbs. I don't know how much is the nose & how much I added, but you can weigh yours & see. Every thing I added is in the tip of the nose.

I normally fly mine on some type of mid size "I".

Mine is 1lb 2 oz. with no weight added (just a custom plate mount for shock cord retention)
I registered today for Thunderstruck, I am looking forward to it. ( I motor sounds good to me. I have AT or CTI cases in any size)

If I may be so bold as to suggest I1299N-P? You would have to add electronic deployment.

Just think of the cool factor there! :jaw:

Warp-Nine....not my thing. I would hate to sneeze when the button was pushed and miss the sound of the motor!!

Sounds ok to me. I'll have to see if I can find a 6 grain case. I'll give Tim a call tomorrow.

I was only quoting HANDEMAN, I would think noseweight would have to be added to go with the "J". Besides, I am still L1. I plan on a L2 attempt at that launch with my 5" V2. So for now, lets stick with something in the "I" selection (I dont want to jinx myself......maybe we will celebrate with the "J" race if all goes well)

OOPS! I just got off the phone with Tim.:y: He'll have it waiting for me at Thunderstruck. It's ok though, any chance I get to buy a new case & Skidmark is ok with me.:clap: Plus as long as it's a Skid & the case will fit one of my wifes rockets shes good with it also.

If it rains this weekend she will be going for her Level 2 at Thunderstruck also.

Yep, I'm bringing it. It will be flying without the altimeter bay & payload section in the drag race on Sunday. If I get a chance I'll put it all back together & fly it on an I200. Come on by on Saturday at the launch & check it out, take a look at what ever you need to.

Also I forgot to wish you good luck on your cert flight.
