15. Repeat steps 13 and 14 for
the other side.
16. Now all we have left is the
nose cone and the launch lug. Glue the nose
cone on. I originally mounted the launch lug
on a fillet made of Locktite putty epoxy that I was experimenting with on this model. I had bad results with the putty as it set up too
quickly. The only real bad thing was that the
launch lug was not centered between the engines and on a C powered flight the model tipped
over and broke the launch lug off. I quickly
re glued it and flew it on As and Bs, but the C broke it again. I then drilled a hole in one of the 63mm pieces
right next to the support tube and then had successful C powered flights.
I have had many successful flights and have
determined the following:
35-40 feet with A motors.
60-80 feet with B motors.
80-100 feet with C motors.
