After several Fat Boy wild launches on C engines (many have posted the
wild horizontal arc problem with C's, but worked fine on B's), I gave up
on the Fat Boy. I checked out RockSim and tried out a few extensions
and played with the software for a while.
Here is what I did. I added a 11" BT80 extension bringing the tube
length to 19". The Nose cone was changed to a BT80 Phoenix type (8.5"
long). The total length is now 27 1/2". Hello BIG AL or maybe I can
call it BIG HOG.
After the soccer field clears out, I will launch the maiden flight with
a B6-2, then try the C5's and C6's. I do not expect to go over 200 feet
on the C's.
Please share comments and advice. EOM
