RE: Something new

RE: Something new

Not exactly sure where you saw a public park in the video? They sell those rockets at Wal-Mart, no ID or anything required.

Something new

Is anyone out there doing something DIFFERENT? Taking some chances, and trying things or just taking things out of the box, gluing them together, and that's it? Some would call it looking for a...

RE: TwinJet to Rocket Propelled/Ever been done?

I don't see why that wouldn't work, but are you going to be about to get to it after you put the rocket in? Depending how big you are going to go, I would say, head to www.apogeerockets.com because...

RE: TwinJet to Rocket Propelled/Ever been done?

Yeah, here is the final cut with a closer fly by with a B on it. Still not what I want, but was all I had. :D

RE: TwinJet to Rocket Propelled/Ever been done?

Well, that was freaking easy enough. I was apparently over complicating the whole thing. The weight to thrust ratio is WAY under for this little rocket motor on this big of wing, but I got the...

RE: TwinJet to Rocket Propelled/Ever been done?

Actually, after some late night beer drinking thought, instead of waiting for the missing pieces to come, I think I'm going to just strap one of my little sisters rocket kits to my plane. They are...

RE: Flying at night, NO PROBLEM

Sure, I found them in the camping section at Walmart. They are little tubes, premade, that you just twist the end to turn on and off. All I did was just tape them to the wing.

RE: What a night

As a rule of thumb that I have heard and used while first learning and even after, try to stay two screw ups off the ground. :D

Invest in a computer simulator, not only is it less expensive to...

RE: TwinJet to Rocket Propelled/Ever been done?

Yeah, looking back I should have landed and shifted the battery forward, but having thrown it off the deck to only nose dive hundreds of times to try and find the CG, I guess I was just caught up in...

RE: TwinJet to Rocket Propelled/Ever been done?

Well,..........uh, 2 out of the 3 things I wanted to do, did, but the 3rd one was, well, exciting, to say the least.
1. I WAS able to get the twin jet to fly even after moving the prop motor...

RE: TwinJet to Rocket Propelled/Ever been done?

Clive is in DSM, but I spend most of my time down in Fairfield, Iowa, just south of Ottumwa. That would be cool. There was supposed to be a fun fly in Ottumwa at the airport today, but the weather...

RE: TwinJet to Rocket Propelled/Ever been done?

Well, actually pulled out the Aerotech 1st Fire Jr. Igniters and tested them with a 9-volt and it worked swimingly. So have now got it all wired up, as shown below. Now I have to figure out how to...

RE: TwinJet to Rocket Propelled/Ever been done?

ok, well, been doing some test "tossing" and I think I got it all retrimmed out and balanced. I don't have the reload kit in yet, but I do have the casing epoxy clayed onto it. Should be some sort...

RE: TwinJet to Rocket Propelled/Ever been done?

Ok, I have that same type of switching set up, but you are using the power from the Receiver, not another source and it is enough to ignite? On early tests that is what caused us some difficulty as...
