I am experimenting with using 2 metal loops for launch lugs.
I cut the end from a paperclip and use that part as a lug. I punch 2 tiny
holes through the body tube and put the ends of the cut clip through and
epoxy on the inside. I place one lug at each end of the rocket.
picture 2 tiny staples in the side of the rocket and you will get the idea.
Try it and let me know.
I recently read about installing magnet lugs inside the body tube of
rockets to provide a launch with no external lugs, thus less air
My questions are
1) What kinds of magnets are used?
2) Do the weight of the magnets have to be balanced on the opposite
side of the tube for good flight?
3) What is the minimum size rocket where one can use magnetic lugs?
4) What is the minimum size lauch rod one can use with magnetic lugs?
