I got the short end of the tube! We got a 12 foot body tube ... Bowhunter got 8 feet and i only got 4! :( Some how i don't think thats fair!

Seems like he's working his way back to no pizza when we go to new york and 2 and 1/2 weeks! hehhehehe

But man i can't wait to see what he does with that 8 foot monster! Should be good!

Meantime i'll see if i can make 4 feet fly. lol

Getting into HPR, are we?:D Congrats! Its great fun! Time to get out the checkbook! ;)

Your a NAR member, right? Im sure you know you need to be to cert...

Did you scrounge this tube up at the local rug store?:D Make sure your 4' sections not too crimped... He might have given you the part that was squished! (j/k) Those carped tubes arent all that round usually, though. I have two that I am going to use for tube couplers for my big 4" mailing tube rocket.:D You can always get more next week (they get new orders all the time, and just throw the tubes out into thier warehouses), and keep it ALL for yourself!:D ;)

Thatll teach him... no pizza and no more carpet tube!:D ;)

It was from a roll of lanolium flooring. We went to supper at his aunts new house the other night walked in and it was sitting in the livingroom so ofcourse we grabed it. lol .. Its actually in really good condition .. no squishing lol .. and the roundness seems good .. maybe becuase the lenolium is lighter then the carpet .. dunno.. but it will work. As for the Cert.. i'll see what i can do .. if it turns out alright .. i might just use it for my cert 1 flight :)) but shhhh don't tell bowhunter ... im gonna take my time and suprise him:) lol

This proabably isnt the best place to keep a secret (hold on, I gotta go PM bowhunter...:D ;) :p (j/k)).

Any idea what its going to look like? What are you going to use for fins? You could go to the carpet store and buy some more tubes for a tube-finned rocket... It doesent matter as much how squished it is for the tube fins... Dont use them if they are oval, but its just not as crucial. I might actually try that with my big carpet tubes... They have just been collecting dust for the past few weeks...:(

I think the only reason my wife lets me keep all my rocket stuff is that it helps keep me out of trouble. As long as I don't try to display them in the living room, and keep them dusted, she doesn't bother them.

But if I ever buy a sports car, I am sure it will immediately go onto her half of the driveway.

I'm with you on the first half, but not the second. My wife, too, likes that I'm at home, and not out "hanging with the guys" or going carousing and whatnot. But she also likes having my rockets out on display in the living room. We keep them on a wine rack, and she likes dusting them!:D :)

Glad to see other people have rockets in their living room lol .. we have a bunch on the entertainment center. As for dusting ... guess who gets to have that job.

Actually, for me, because I fly in the desert, I have to dust my rockets AFTER I fly them!
