Yep. I can definitely stack the boosters under either sustainer. I'll most likely give that a shot once I get the initial one and two stage test launches complete.Does either booster fit under the other booster? Your three stage dreams might not be dead!
I like the cleaner look to. Are they too clean? Maybe just some simple stripes or chevrons or something, either decals or paint. Like, say, a half inch or inch wide band of the fin color about half way up the body, or something small and simple like that.
I remember that build!Modified bicycle hooks into rocket hooks in the bench vise and hung a rocket on the wall of my new shop above the temporary work station #1.
That's the one with the five finned tail made from a plastic desktop lazy Susan. I like it because it was one of my first builds using Openrocket and showed me a lot about fight parameters, being that it was going to be tailheavy from the start. 29mm, needed to push all that necessary nose lead. Have not flown her yet.
My very first rocket was an Estes WAC Corporal that I built and my dad painted in Gulf Racing blue and orange. (He worked for Gulf Oil for almost 30 years before they sold out to SoCal/Chevron.)
Always a beautiful colour combination. Especially on a GT40.My very first rocket was an Estes WAC Corporal that I built and my dad painted in Gulf Racing blue and orange. (He worked for Gulf Oil for almost 30 years before they sold out to SoCal/Chevron.)
For LPR kits I like to take the face card and make two "risers", each by folding up 90, over 180, then back out 90. Tape the risers closed. If I'm feeling really ambitious I'll cut V notches into them. But I guess that's too high tech for some.Note the high-tech rocket cradle...
