nice build so far mate looking good

just on the shock cord the Binder ones supplied with the kits will handle the loads placed on them , it must be remembered that they are tubular shockcords which spread the weight and stress on the cord evenly over it .

just for readers info i have been using a standard binder cord in my  M powered competitor as a back up cord with no problems at all.

great to see you building new kits and restocking your fleet.  blcool blcool blcool blcool blcool blcool blcool blcool blcool blcool

Its not really the load on shock cord which am worried about Wolflair. Its the load on the body tube from an early ejection or late ejection that worries me. Zippers are a pain, plus love mega long shock cords.  dizwink

Now for the real fun.  dizrolleyes Instructions suggested painting the entire rocket white first then to proceed with masking areas off for the other colours. This prompted a quick trip to bunnings where 2 cans of white were obtained at a bargain price of $2.95 each.  dizcool



Next was to find somewhere to paint it. A wire coat hanger was modified and hung on one of the launch buttons.



Painting several coats will be needed before masking can begin.




Will post more later.

After running out of black which prompted another quick trip to Bunnings have now finally finished. The TOTAL cost of this paint job was $11.80.  icon_thumright






Now what to launch this rocket on for its first flight at next meet.  dizundecided

 hum

Common sense suggests something small like a H or I for its first flight.  32

Am feeling a bit evil about this.  fanevil So am going to consider putting the biggest, meanest, nastiest motor in this for its first flight. A J510W  bltongue

Can someone please give me a estimated height with this motor as don't want to exceed the CASA permission?

I did some calculations and I estimate mach 0.924 and 4,546ft, with 37Gs. Time to apogee - 13.1s

Maybe we should do a poll to see who gets the closest. I have a altimeter 2 you can borough if you don't break it!

Cheers for that Loki.  icon_thumright Wont be able to launch to that height if its windy. Without dual deploy it would take about 10 to 15 minutes to come down on chute. Will see what weather is like.  dizundecided

Our last launch of the year for AARC saw the Iris go up. Given the weather was great with hardly any wind decided to use the rail launcher which cant be angled. All went extremely well for its first flight. Was very pleased with its flight and recovery as seen in the photos below.  icon_thumleft

Unfortunately everyone missed the actual launch photo as was too quick.   BangHead





This concludes the build thread for Iris which found was a very easy kit to build.  icon_thumright
