|Doug, put a lot of effort into
this very cool design that I have seen fly many times.
provided the following information with his entry:
I do not know how many entries you got this month, but I decided to send this one.
Built entirely out of Fliskits parts (with the exception of the Recovery System). This
beast was the first rocket to utilize the new Fliskits 1 24mm + 4 13mm motor mount
assembly. Using Two lengths of FlisKits BT-70 tubing, this beast is huge!.
I have flown the Titan twice. Once at TRF 2004 with a D12-5 and four A10-PT's. The second
time was at the May 1st CMASS launch. She flew Absolutely beautiful on a E9 and 4
A10-PT's. Video of the second flight can be downloaded here:
Special note on construction: Do not use to much glue when joining the two lengths of
BT-70 material. The Body Tube will buckle from the moisture in the glue.

Other things needed that are not mentioned in the Parts List: Recovery System, and Launch
Lugs. I chose to use a 18" nylon chute for recovery. For the launch lugs, I
opted for 1/4" inch. That way I can use either 3/16 or 1/4" rods.
Finally, the TRF thread about the Titan, which includes some construction photographs:
