Default New Bomarc in primer

Wow, is this thing heavy! Only primer and no ramjets yet, it's going to be a beast lol! Can't imagine a G motor even getting it off the pad. Should look cool though.

Oops, there's only one rocket! Posted twice. Just checked the CG, it's going to need a lot of lead in the nose. Maybe a 29mm H would be a better choice : )

Decals and clear coat to go. What turned out to be a project for my son has got me interested in rockets again! Don't think the G class of going to cut it for long, it would be fun to get a few levels of certification and try some really big rockets.

Ready to fly! My son finished up the decals and shot a coat of clear. He's picking up on painting pretty quick! Using Rocsim I'm getting 22feet/sec decent on the 36" parachute, seems a little fast. May have to get something a little bigger to soften the landing.

Thanks! Looks like 44" is the choice. Our next rocket is using dual deployment so it won't be an issue : )

Thanks! Not the easiest rocket to finish. We'll start with Aerotech G-74G which should get 700'. An H impulse motor should get it around 1200'. Not a lot of altitude, but considering the weight and drag it's not bad.

Not the best idea to mount a gopro cam on the launch pad, you don't see a lot. Good thing it wasn't a smokey sam : )
