This is my entry into the Let it Glow Contest. If you like it, please vote.
Now that school, and therefore finals, are done I can finally finish this Instructable. It has been waiting to be completed for about a month now but I've been so busy with other things that I waited till the last hour to finish this Instrcutable and enter it in to the contest.
Model rockets are cool and lots of fun. The same applies to LED's and other simple electronics. So you now wonder, why not combine the two. Well, here I will combine the two, and also feed everyone's secret addiction to fire (you know it's true) by adding LED Glow effects to a high flying model rocket.
Step 1: Gather Materials
To do this, you will need:
- Model rocket
- 3 10mm LED's (colors may vary)
- 3 3032 coin cell batteries
- Soldering supplies
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue sticks
- Electrical tape
- Exacto knife
- Razor blade (unless you want to cover your Exacto with hot glue)
- Small saw (optional)
- File (helpful)
- Mini butane blowtorch (or jet (windproof) lighter)
