Pringle Can Rocket Poll Question
#11
Not my thread, but I'll go out on a limb...No, don't you dare remove your post! No matter where the post is, the central point is the Pringles. Well, not the Pringles themselves.

Your rockets look great. What are the cones? Cardstock?

Cardstock.  Thanks! I do not usually think that they look great, more like functional.Smile  I am not really into the whole seal, prime, sand,  prime and paint routine, I think that two layers of paint suffice.  Painting that white booster took more than a new can of white gloss. Confused

Hope that limb doesn't break.

The only problem with Pringle can rocketry, is the affect of all the salt and junk on my blood pressure.

It is funny how I didn't have blood pressure issues until after building those Pringle can rockets...

Thanks!
Yeah, it is awesome, though it did not last long.  That is not what was seen on the ground in realtime, only in a picture could you see that.

There is a lot of cool stuff made with pringles cans, glad this thread exists.

Greetings:

I am impressed with anyone that uses Pringle's Cans for rockets.  I will need to use a D12 on the 2 long tube version of the Saturn-3/Nova rocket since the finished weight was 7.2 oz.  I built this one heavy.  The tubes can also be sued for mid range power.

It useful to re-purpose tube to rocketry.  It has save my campers and sponsors a bundle of $$$$$$$.  I can take the cash and use it on rocket motors.

I do have one question--what were the plants growing around the lanch pad for the 3 long tube Pringle's can rocket ?

They are soybeans.  I launch these in a farm field where there is more space to recover them in.

I have posted an image of the 7.2 oz rocket on the Pringle's Rocket thread.  A. Big Grin
