I'm in the process or repairing my Stovi after flying it on a G55-5 with a
15 second delay.  Would someone please measure the length of the 3" section
of tube for me?

Thanks,
Bob Chmara

Hi Bob,

That section is 14" long... but I don't think it's 3" diameter, more
like 2.6".

Sorry to hear about that bonus delay! :-(

mine is 18" - it got as small as 6" cause everytime I fly it it zips - now I
use couplers inside and***the upper section is so it is easier to fix -
I like the longer look to it as well.
still looking for the perfect load/delay for this rocket -

Bob,

The 3" section is 14" long. My Stovi generally flies on one G80 and six D12's.
It is quite a little performer!

William:

It sounds like you installed the 29mm center MMT.  If so, how did you keep
the outboards at 24mm?  Mine has the 24mm center MMT so I usually fly it on
F72, F101 and G55 motors.  I've never put any motors in the outboards but I
bought a bunch of D11-P's for that purpose.  How do you light the outboards?

Bob,

I did a little cutting on the outboard tubes so that they're sticking out just a
little. In other words, not all of the tubes fit inside of the 3" BT. I filled
them in at the top so it looks pretty good. I generally airstart the outboards
with thermalite. For a good description of how to set up motors for airstarting,
I would recommend finding someone you know that has done it before because it is
pretty lengthy to write down. Here's the URL for a picture of my
"Stovi".http://www.users.uswest.net/~wbeggs/stovi.htm. The picture takes a while
to load if you have a slow modem. If you want I have more detailed photos.
