It's his? He's going to sit in it?My buddy asked if I could take on a project for him. Jumped on that ASAP! He had a 16’ Church Pew and wanted it cut down to fit 2 big guys.. lol aka Bench for Dude Room...
So here are pics as it came to me during the redesign and pics as I’m sending it back to him!
This has been a fun project not rocket related.. Now it’s time to finish a Rocket as I’m jonesing to Launch!!!
Just seeing the picture makes me smile.
Vertebrate animals are not allowed currently. Although our NAR sponsor was showing a video of days long gone by where a school team put a mouse in their payload and recovered him.Would a NAR launch allow that?
I’d caution you about the sharpness of the legs on those sawhorses but I’m guessing you’ve already discovered that.Finally got some time to get out an fly again although conditions were not the best. Got about 10 flights in the books before I wrapped it up as it was just too windy.
The Red and Silver pic is a home design. Something reminiscent of Alien Space Probe meets Asteroid Explorer. Flew well on a B6-4 but really could have used a C6-5 but I wanted to keep things low due to winds.
The second is an old Custom Rockets Oasis. Picked it up as part of a collection a couple years back and wanted to fly it before complete restoration. It's designed as a 24mm rocket but I flew it on a B6-4. Perfect flight and perfect recovery if a bit of a long walk.
Flew a few other models as well but didn't get pics. There's always next time.
