The big Quaker Oats thread
#1
Ok, I decided not to totally hijack the Pringles rocket thread. I think I did mention that the large Quaker Oats bins are one of my favorites for mid to high power rockets. Here are a few of mine. The first one is called the Margin of Error and the next is clearly an big Estes Cluster Bomb. The Margin of Error flies on G and H motors and the Cluster Bomb on Gs.

                   

On the plus side, the tubes are light...and BIG. One downside is that they really don't like moisture. Both have been rebuilt because of this. Luckily, oatmeal is good for ya' Smile The Cluster Bomb has gone swimming and the Margin of Error landed in a muddy puddle. Both survived but barely. In the end I preferred to replace the damaged tube with a new one.

And, here's one that didn't do so well. But you can see that it was mostly re-used.

LOL, I think it was the top off a huge bin of Utz (probably) pretzels. In any event, it wasn't BIG enough!
