Default Odd'l Rockets "Pipeline"

So in the last two years (regularly interrupted by Real Life), I managed to misplace the instructions for my Odd'l Rockets "Pipeline" kit.

I think the paint scheme specifies painting the nose cone and 2" of the body tube red. Can anyone confirm/deny/correct that measurement?


HCMbanjo?


Thanks.

Hi jay -
Has it been two years?

The information you need is in the attached picture taken from the instructions.
I had to attach it as a JPEG, you can't use PDFs on the forum.
(At least I don't know how!)

Let me know how it finishes up and flys!

All the best -

Yes, I'm sorry it's taken so long!

Thanks for the answer!

Hoping to get it into the air Real Soon Now. But we keep having all these annoying range fires. (Darn cheatgrass, anyhow!)

Cheers,

Chris,

*Much* longer than that, I'm afraid.


So about your Odd'l Rockets "Pipeline"... where did you source your washer weight? All I can read on it is "USA" and" 3/8."


The specs follow:

O.D. = 7/8"

I.D. = 3/8"

L = 1/8"


It hefts like it's lead and it looks vaguely gold-colored.

I'm hoping to repent of my observer-only ways this spring and summer.


Cheers and blessings,

Hi Jay,

The washers were purchased from Semroc,
before it was purchased by ERockets.biz.

Just looked it up on the Erockets website:

Thanks, Chris!

Okay, they're the 2.5g WW-8A washer weights.

I checked my Semroc stockpile, and it looks like I bought six dozen 1.5g WW-7As from Carl and the McLawhorns.


--I might have enough to do what I need to.
