"Estes Saturn V 1/100 scale"
champfluff
I have seen an Estes Saturn V launched on an E30-4 and was very disappointed. In fact it barely made it off the launch pad and wind cocked, as soon as it left the launch rod, a very dangerous situation, when you have a crowd of people. 1st of all, it has been up powered, but for me, still not enough. The original release was powered by a D12-3, with an optional 3x C6-3 cluster, for a total impulse of about 30N-sec, so they have only changed the power to a 1 motor option now. The Saturn V deserves more respect and should be powered by a cluster of 5x 24mm motors, for a really impressive flight, but could still be powered by 5x 18mm motors with the adapters, giving you a much more diversified motor selection, from 5x C6-5's to 5x F62's. The 5x E9-6 should be the most impressive launch, with long burn low, thrust and should look almost realistic. BT-101 body tubes can house these motors with no problem, but you will need plywood centering rings. I would go with the 24mm 60N-sec cases giving you 5x F62's and you will still be under the maximum total impulse for a model rocket, by about 10N-sec. Assemble with epoxy, upgrade your parachutes to nylon, install an ejection baffle, upgrade you shock cord to nylon, or Kevlar and add nose weight to stabilize for increased engine mass and you will have a Saturn V to impress, not disappoint the masses. Best wishes with these modifications and have fun.
