Painkiller 3
« on: November 29, 2015, 10:51:02 PM »
So shortly after URRF2 I bought a PK3 and started building it.  After I finished the booster, I stopped short of installing the fins.  While I liked them at first sight,  the unique design fell out of favor fast.  So the project has sat for a year and a half.  I just picked up a 3/32" sheet of canvas....so, game on.

When I started this I was in the habit of working on around 3-4 rockets at a time -




Motor mount-



Sticking glue up in the tube...




glued up the bulkheads


I drilled holes for #8 screws.  This was a test for my Tomach.  I've never countersunk screws for a payload before.  Seems to have worked.  I drilled one hole, slid a screw in and taped it in place.  repeated 3 times.   Then I pulled them and countersunk it one by one.

No real set motor plans for it.  Never really had any...  Most of what I want to fly is going to wind up in the Villain and Tomach...  But I think this could be a fun 54 one grain flier to low altitudes
