Okay fellow rocketeers, I'm getting pretty bored with all the rant and rave
posts here. I just want to build rockets!
I'm toying with the idea of building a BIG Mars Snooper. I have been
sitting here looking at my estes original that I built back in the sixties.
I really need to paint it someday:) and I was thinking of building one with
a 98mm 1st stage motor and a 75mm (or 54mm 2nd stage). I think it would
also be pretty cool to use 3 54mm motors in the pods if possible.
Possibly use the 54's (or go to 75mm in the pods) to get it in the air, then
light the 98 and then the 2nd stage.
Any of you "Engineer" inclined types out there up to a real design
challenge? I'm not in any hurry on this, since this is a fairly complex and
expensive project. I just think it would look fantastic to be able to
launch a bird like this. I really need some input on the structural
problems involved as well as electronic and recovery ideas.
All ideas and serious replies will be considered.
Thanks in advance
Yea I am a TRA and NAR member, but lets face it - this is going to be one
heck of an experimental !
