I have used many food containers but never a Pringles can. Mainly because we don't eat them. If I did I'm sure they would have made their way into a rocket. MY personal favorite is the large Quaker Oats bins.

The poll didn't appear when I first posted...I have now voted 'other'.

We have a guy in club who turns Quaker Oars bins into boost gliders. The big one holds an E motor with 8 little gliders that pop off at apogee. He calls it the Oatmobile 8

I've never been big on rockets using other tubes for body tubes.  I guess my interests are mainly in recreation of older Estes/Centuri models (same scale or upscaled), or my own designs, typically military-looking/missile or fantasy. As a result, there are plenty of commercially available tubes for my scratch builds. I do use non-rocket parts on some scratch builds. I use plastic model parts to graft onto rockets. Here is a heavily modified Estes Outlander I did a few years ago.

I have seen "undecorated" Pringle can rockets fly at NYPOWER in the past.
When say undecorated, I am referring to the cans have their native wraps as decoration, instead of a paint job.
They look pretty sharp, especially the barbeque variety! Wink

How many X-Wings panels did you add?  More than the one?

Just one. The piece hanging off the edge of the "cone" at the left is the tip of the display stand, as I recall. Lots of pieces of flat styrene and some other pieces scrounged from a box of model parts whose identities are a bit of a mystery at this point.

I just realized I hijacked this thread on Pringles rockets. Sorry!
