Default What to do?

I won a bag of mid power parts in a raffle at GARLO 2012 in Champaign, IL yesterday. But, since I have never built anything that size, I'm not sure what to do with them.

What I have looks about like that Rocwerks Reactor with a twin 24mm engine mount. Since it is a bag of parts there are no fins included. The closest thing I have seen, that I like, is the Little John missile.

Only real problem is that I have never done through wall fins or a dual engine mount. And, have no idea how to attach the 24" parachute. All I have ever used are the tri-fold Estes type shock cords...

Do some digging in the various mid-power forums, that should give you everything you need. I'd be happy to take it off your hands otherwise.

It's free so experiment, build, and fly. You won't be out any cash if you mess something up.

It wasn't complete, so I'll have to spend a little. Just thought there might be enough folks here with BT-80 rockets to get some ideas before I commit to a semi Little John.

TTW isn't hard to do and there are several easy options for mounting your shock cord.
