LAMP

Build

LAMP is mostly a joke that happened during RSI's 24 hour live feed during the end of their kickstarter campaign for Star Citizen. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cig/star-citizen and http://www.robertsspaceindustries.com/star-citizen/?rid=40931 during this feed, when the Development team went ...

4 fins, 3 Motor Mounts, 2 Airstarts, and a Altimeter - 1 MMT

Build Entry

So, start with 3 "standard" estes 24mm (D and E) motor mount kits (p/n 303159). I built them with Epoxy, instead of white/yellow glue, just to insure strength, since this "Could" be launched on 3 F39's ! Attach 1-1/2 yard of kevlar shock cord to 2 of the mmts, and 3 yards to the mmt that will ... [More]

Who says small rockets have to be simple? What is this rocket? It is (or will be) a scratch built 24mm normal looking rocket, that just happens to have: 2 side pods that also have 24mm mmt's.. that will be air started electonicly after the center motor burns out (plus a second or two). ... [More]

Mini-BBX w/ CPR3K w/ Terrier Booster

Flight

Power of lower stage was too low, going to need to step it up for any furture 2 stage flights. The top stage did not light either (seems to have been an ignighter problem). The rocket did get high enough to arm the ejection charges, so everything did come down on 'chute. but they fouled since ... [More]

Pemberton Technologies - King Kraken

Rocksim Design

Rocksim 9 can now handle tube fins, but not the Beveled style that the Kraken uses. the 3-fin sets used here approximate the drag of the actual tubes.

GL's Doppler Shift 2.6 - Finishing

Build Entry

Prime, sand, repeat. Saddly due to the weather, these steps will take a while. While I was waiting for the primer to dry, I finished up the Avbay, not that there was that much to do. And I did some work on the decal that I will use, not sure yet if it will go on the flat of the Fin-Der or on ... [More]

GL's Doppler Shift 2.6 - Day 4 (Fin-Ders)

Build Entry

The Fin-ders slip over each fin, and epoxyed. Try your best to get the fin-der's to align with each other... unfortuantly, one of mine is set back further than the other two. Once everything was dry, I took alook at the gaps... yes, there WILL be gaps, it is designed that way. This is going ... [More]

GL's Doppler Shift 2.6 - Day 3

Build Entry

Trying to get the fincan/MM Tube to slide into the pre-sloted body tube took a lot of effort. Thankfully I was warned of this by my brother, and I was prepared. First, as the instructions suggested I took off the 1/32" joint line that is at the middle of the fin can Second, I sanded down the ... [More]

GL's Doppler Shift 2.6 - Day 2

I used DAP Plastic Wood to fill in the groves on the body tubes. Normally I dont bother, but I wanted this rocket's paint job to be extra nice. Next up was the AV bay... seems kinda big. [More]

GL's Doppler Shift 2.6 - Delivery

Build Entry

And waiting for me today there it was.... Everything looked ok, except that the coupler was a bit pushed into the body tube, and rather stuck. It took about 20 minuets of gentle coaxing to seperate them Here is another look at all the parts, with the packages opened. Double Doppler ... [More]
