Was trawling the ARF forums last night and stumbled across a full scale Patriot build:

I have seen CATO's 1/4 scale patriot at a QRS launch last October

For comparison, he puts the 1/4 scale next to the full scale build..

holy moly...

A few tweaks to get it stable, like slightly oversize fins and NC. But correct diameter and length.

Pretty much 1:1. Robert Dehate and Tom Cohen built it. It flew at LDRS and this past summer at MDRA.

That's actually that mandrel for the airframe, not the full scale airframe. That can be seen here...



What blows me away is that the motor mount configuration will be 7 98mm mounts capable of holding 7 CTI 98mm 6GXL motor cases.

Yeah..from memory, I think CATO noted he was aiming for 20,000ft with this one...

Thank Goodness for people with video camera's and youtube.
I love watching the big honkers go up.
Wife yells at me every time, "Turn That Thing Down"!
I guess if it's loud enough I trick my brain into smelling the burn.
