I cloned one last year. On the day I flew it, it was the only rocket to fly back over the pads with the wind. All I can do now is remember it. :(

My grass is on the fourth cutting. B6-4 Field is still puddle ridden. They actually flew in the cornfield on Saturday. The idea just had no appeal to me.

Ditto for me except for the wraps and my homemade decals. I lent Mike a couple of my cones to use as copies to make the resin pieces. He sent me a couple of Orion nose cones that were seconds from...

I vary the weight in the belly tank based on the test glides. I always pack the marker cone half full of bbs, then coat them with Gorilla Glue.

I think it was a BT-70. And the colors were orange, black and silver, not white. ;) (My brother-in-law said I had too much white in my rockets, and I took him to heart on scratch builds/upscales.)...

Thanks, Jeff. I thought I had another one ready to go, with parts and plans gathered, but I can't think of which one at the moment. My rocketry time has been decimated by my recent shift change. ...

The booster standoffs look to be 5/16" in width, but it's a tight spot. The lug standoffs are 1/4". It's right here with me. What kind of pics do you need?

Bruce, I have an original kit at home. I can check the details tonight when I get home. This is one of those birds that needed 24mm power. I've been toying with the idea of converting mine.

I cloned a Lambda 8, Phobos, Theta 37 and Zeus recently. They're simple designs, but always get a "What?" when they're announced at the pads. Perfect B6-4 Field flights on an A8-3. Got any more...
