Well i built it and let me say, it looks great! only one suggestion. you should label ALL of the parts. i had trouble figuring out what the bottom fins were. i finally figured it out though. i built mine around a C6-5. probably overkill, but hey, whats it matter? pics to come probabably. also trying to figure out how to make a motor mount that will eject with the motor and pull out a streamer or chute. also, im surprised im the only one interested in this

Like I said, it is in the prototype stage at this time. I hope to get it labeled better.

I too was trying to figure out a way for the engine to drag out a streamer. Nothing good yet!

Turned out pretty slick for black & white!

And, your pictures are much better than mine.

Here are the latest updates. Take a look and tell me what you think. I am currently building this version and not sure of it yet.

Had to break it down into three pages to get some kind of instructions in there!

I was wondering if you figured out how to balance it. I was thinking of BB's in the nose but didn't want the glue to warp the cardstock.

Epoxy shouldn't warp it.

Thought I would try another picture since I had the camera out. It is a completed one of the final version. I think I got one that isn't blurry!
