This thread is making me want to go out and buy a kit - it's SO much fun to play with.
This thread DID make me go out and buy one of the cheap kits..
only a cardboard fuselage recommended c-6-0 engines but i got b-6-2's as it's my first time..
I can see pvc
being far to heavy and the only other prob I can see is there is no weight in the nose so guidance will be 0-none.
Friday night now, first launch will be on sunday arvo in the park across the road.
last but not least, if this thing fails catastrophically and explodes, you don't want to add to the number of high speed fragments racing towards you.
The engines are designed to blow at the bottom first then they blow at the top second to pressurise the release of the parachute.
I won't be using a chute as my engines arent to powerful anyway, but besides that there is no chance of hell of anything actually blowing up at all.
anyway, if does explode, you'll be looking at a multi million dollar lawsuit against the makers.
Ill let you know how i go for my first test flight.
