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.
