it’s string it’s an idea tim from apogee does where ya get the two centering ring in line with the fins Tac everything with super glue together except the aft use the strings to then pull the aft ring back out and now do all the epoxy inside. Kinda a cool little trickWhat is that all over the aft centering ring?
its rocket poxy on the aft ring it’s a really thin layer covering all the holes where the strings were and sealing in the aft ring to the body tubeNot the first pic (i do similar to get the aft ring out after the mount is fixed)
All the gray goop in the last picture
ahhh yea good old rocket poxy I like using it because it tends to be thicker right out the gate so less running stays in place but still able to move it around well dark color is just the dye you add to the mixing process to make sure it thoroughly mixedCopy that. Looked like JB weld and I was real confused
More of a excited to get it can’t wait, not figuratively. After the raving reviews for it and less tinkering around on it seems like, will be worth the wait yes.I always find it funny how people say "can't wait", and then they wait. Seems like they're underestimating their own abilities.
I prefer the other motor scaling convention of X, Y, Z, AA, AB, AC, etc.... (Shuttle SRB clocking in as an AD)and the Saturn V, sitting at an 8Z motor or 1.07E+10 Newton seconds.
It is significantly more up to date than the handbook and very well suited to contemporary hobbyingI'm hoping that since I've recently finished "Handbook of Model Rocketry" that I've covered an adequate amount of that material, but I have to admit that I'm a mite curious about this predecessor book now as well.
