Lost and Found / Lost Jolly Logic Chute Release
« on: February 29, 2020, 06:08:15 PM »
I lost a Jolly Logic Chute Release (forget to tether to rocket).  Was set to 600'.Should be west of the drive, and north of the stream.  Rocket landed next to the bridge by the launch controllers.  Winds were coming from northwest.

Believe Bob M mentioned doing something to share photos/videos.  Consider this thread as a reminder.

General Discussion / Quest Q2G2 Initiators
« on: February 22, 2020, 05:01:48 PM »
Do the Quest Q2G2 initiators behave nicely with TMO's launch controllers?
I've read the Q2G2 initiators were designed for 9V power, and continuity checks on some higher power controllers may cause the initiator to set off.
Hoping i can use the Q2G2's for a 3 x Estes F15 cluster, in my 1/70th scale Falcon Heavy prototype.

"Quint had the last launch of the day with his rocket on an Estes D12-5 for a nice flight and recovery."

Do you take any precautions when sanding microballoons?  Dust mask, goggles, gloves, etc?  If dust mask, what kind of dust mask?
Just applied layer of phenolic balloons/spheres to 5.5" x 17" cone.

Ordered quart each of 'Glass Bubbles' and 'Phenolic microballons' from US Composites.  Smallest size they had.   One of those should do the trick.

Build Techniques / Filling 6oz fiberglass weave
« on: December 04, 2018, 09:52:20 PM »
Anyone have recommendations for filler to use when filling 6oz fiberglass weave?

I tried a two part bondo filler several years back, and remember sanding more/harder than i anticipated.  Might have been good amount of fumes as well, which i would like to avoid.

Leaning towards glass or phenolic balloons from us composites, but i have not tried any epoxy fillers yet.  Already have 635 epoxy resin/hardener.

Build Techniques / 1515 Rail Buttons
« on: November 26, 2018, 09:51:24 PM »
Does the TMO/members have any preferences for when to start using 1515 rail buttons?  Working on a 10 lb rocket.  Currently assuming 1010 buttons will be fine.
