Exclamation New Plan -- Longneck

The thread on the "E"-powered ThunderRoc got me started thinking (dangerous, you all know that! ) about coming up with an appropriate design for BARCLONE...

I think everyone will like the name, anyway...

SEMROC components for the nose cone and body tubes, but there's a mix of custom-built pieces and some Estes pieces. I used a 6" length of BT-50 for the motor tube...

The main body tubes are 30" lengths of ST-175. Carl doesn't have these listed as "In Stock" yet, just as "Coming Soon". The hollow tube coupler shown in the list has to be made from a length of ST-175 tubing, 4" long, split and a strip taken out. Easier to do than to tell you how to do it...

No launch lugs for this bird; you need a launch tower to be effective, as the rocket doesn't reach flight speed until it gets about 60" off the ground. Composite motors only.
