The Fat Fat Boy (2)



This second Fat Fat Boy has a few minor changes from the first one.  There's one more outboard tube, to allow use of outboards in pairs, triplets, or four at a time.  I simplified construction to eliminate the effortful, time consuming, and not very effective vents, and changed from the stock-looking paint job to one of the fades I've been putting on other rockets recently.  I also installed only a 3/16" launch lug -- it's not hard to find 3/16" rods in this neck of the woods; even my own pad will accomodate one.  So far, the rocket has demonstrated good stability and robtustness with core only, and with three outboards.  More to come, I expect.
