Default RTB Orion

Would there be enough interest in the release of a Ready to Build Orion to merit a kit?

Which Orion?

That name was on a bunch of rockets.

Maybe a 1/2 scale? That might be fun.

Actually I was referring to the present Ready To Build series from Semroc. That which features :-

Quote:
laser-cut balsa fins and adding a through-the-wall tab to match the laser-cut precision tube slots makes fin construction a breeze. A laser-cut fiber fin template makes it simple to align the fins almost perfectly. The addition of an inner tube to insulate the outer tube from hot delay flames and ejection gases also keeps the extra long 36 elastic shock cord protected

I was thinking that an Orion (as already relased by Semroc) in this "scale" would be a very nice little model to both build and fly.

That would be an awful lot of fun.

Default Look! A squirrel!

Okay, I, too, would like to see a RTB Orion. But if we keep putting ideas like this in Carl's head and distracting him he will never get the motor machine up and running. Priorities!
Got the RTB Orion scaled up, aaahh, down Carl?

I have been looking for those little fiddly-bits for the last two hours. I think the laser cutter ate them!
