"Nike Smoke (Level 2) 18mm to 24mm Up Power Mod"
champfluff
Excellent kit, but needs more power. Ever since Estes discontinued their Pro Series Nike Smoke, this Skill Level 2 Nike Smoke can be a minimum diameter powered and stable by using a BT-50, or E engine motor mount. After tracing out the fins, you will be able to add to the fins, the through tube mounting tabs and reinforcing braces out of sheet balsa. This will strengthen the motor mounting around the fin can. After tracing the through fin slots on the BT-60, cut the through the tube slots. Sand the fins at 3 angles per side and tapered away from the root edge, then laminate with CA and a printer paper, one layer per side, should be fine. Look for the CA wicking through the paper, for a more secure bond. I would use a Pro Series 24mm Retainer for a better appearance, but an engine hook will work. Upgrade your parachute and installing a baffle, so your chute won't melt and you should counter balance your C/G, with the heaviest engine available, or your rocket won't fly stable. Use 2x3/8 launch lugs and once you're satisfied with the stability it's time for a test flight, with a C11-5, or D12-7(1st flight), with 1 spacer, depending on your Nike Smoke's final mass, before using E9-6, or E12-8(Heaviest BP motor). You will be impressed. If not enough, fly with a 24mm composite motor, but you might lose it without GPS tracking.

"Very cool rocket"
Luakgc
Looks amazing. Easy to build. Fun to fly. Don't be afraid of using regular scotch tape when detailed painting. You will not hurt it if careful.

Comments

Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
