  Recent builds
Posted by: BARGeezer - 02-26-2018, 10:26 AM - Forum: Micro Maxx MMX - Replies (3)

Hi, new member here. Here's a couple of pics of recent MMX builds. So recent that they're still "nekkid". I see that the last post here was over 2 years ago. Hope we can keep this section going for all the Maxxers out there.

   


ASP That Tube! rocket. Easiest MMX build ever.

   

Fliskits Intergalactic Man of Space. Next to an Astron Spaceman clone.

I hope to do a build thread in the near future here. Maybe a kit, maybe a scratch or downscale.  See ya!

Posted by: IndianaSteve - 02-22-2018, 08:13 AM - Forum: Recovery - Replies (2)

Well since my son and I are slowly getting into higher power rocketry and the electronics that are associated with it, I am in the market for some sort of tracking system. Would like to hear some thoughts on systems for newbies like ourselves. 
With a chute release, and altimeter on board most of our high power and mid power flights I think it would be a good investment. I am hoping to find a unit that wouldn’t necessarily need a av bay to use. . Is there something in the $200 range that would fit my bill?
Appreciate any insight. 
Steve

  Super Big Bertha
Posted by: IndianaSteve - 01-27-2018, 05:31 PM - Forum: Mid Power - Replies (6)

Did a fun build out of some spare parts lying around this weekend. Built a bit larger version of the Super Big Bertha. It makes my 3rd Bertha, coming in @ 44” tall and a 29mm motor mount it should be a fun flier! Well here is a couple pics of what I have dubbed Stealth Mode.

  Hello from Buffalo
Posted by: gereshes - 01-22-2018, 11:23 AM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (2)

Hey,

I'm an undergraduate studying aerospace engineering at the University at Buffalo and have my L1 cert and am currently building another scratchbuilt for my L2 cert. I've started a website to cover some of my engineering projects that I'm working on/have completed. Quite a few of these projects involve high power and experimental rocketry and ~ 1/3 of my site is devoted to it. You can find the main rocketry page here http://gereshes.com/rocketry/ . The website also has a blog portion where I am trying to post every Monday. The blog is currently in the middle of the series detailing the rolling out of a test stand to support the Universtiy at Buffalo SEDS experimental motor program. You can find the latest post here http://gereshes.com/2018/01/22/structura...-roll-out/

  Fun V2 build
Posted by: IndianaSteve - 01-19-2018, 09:35 PM - Forum: Low Power - Replies (1)

Just finished a fun build tonight. The Estes V2 had always been on my build list, but I never purchased one. Well all that changed last week when the UPS dropped this one off. I wasn’t go for a show paint job on this, I wanted that retro camouflage look. The OD green and black is my favorite combo, so here is how she turned out. Now to wait for the weather to turn and get her in the air!

  Aerotech Mustang Build
Posted by: IndianaSteve - 01-15-2018, 11:55 AM - Forum: Mid Power - Replies (3)

well Since the Indiana weather is still crap, I thought I would share a few pics of my weekend build. This is my first Aerotech kit I have built, but won’t be the last. I was impressed by the quality and fit of all the parts in the kit. 

I didn’t plan on doing a build thread on this one so there is only a few pics of construction. The only deviation from the kit is the decals. I went with a set of vinyls from stickershock23 instead of the provided water slide decals. 

Hopefully the Indiana weather will cooperate and I can get some flight time soon! Well here is a couple pics.

  AMW Red Max Build
Posted by: MarkH - 01-14-2018, 06:25 PM - Forum: High Power - Replies (40)

Here are the parts unboxed.  Fin skins included.

   

I am currently thinking of building it with a 75mm mount, since a 54mm J doesn't seem like enough.   And because my Estes Mega DRM was 98mm/minimum diameter... going for a little less overkill here.  I think I can make a 2 grain 75mm work.

  Big Bertha Stealth
Posted by: IndianaSteve - 01-07-2018, 12:29 PM - Forum: Mid Power - Replies (3)

Well since it’s freezing cold in Indiana this weekend, I thought a fun build was in order. I had a Big Bertha kit in the build pile and decided to put her together. 
Looking at the little 18mm motor mount made me think man this could really get up and go with my stash of F32-4t Blue Thunder engines! So I fabbed a custom 24mm engine mount and retainer and dropped it in. While thinking of stabilizing this girl while screaming though the air 😂 I oversized the fins and made them out of 3/32” balsa instead of the 1/8”. 
I finished it out in a black metallic pearl paint and once my custom decals come in, I will apply them and clear coat. 
Well enough rambling out of me, so here’s a pic, and one with her little sister for fun 😁
