At a launch,I watched a guy build a rocket from a kit,and he spent the
whole day doing it.He could have been flying other rockets,or watching the
other launches.I also wonder about the build quality of a field-constructed
rocket.It seems more sensible,IMO,to set a damaged rocket aside,and fly
other rockets,or to just watch other flyers,than to dig out tools and
glues,and repair on-site.Then when you get home,you can do a better job on
