Glue a micro rocket engine to a balsa glider. This is NOT a launch it entry, I didn't feel like doing the safety stuff, this was done to blow off steam between bouts of statics and statistics homework.
Step 1: Wacha Need?
A balsa glider
micro maxx rocket engines
a spring from a pen
These motors come with a proprietary igniter, we start by disassembling the igniter, the two halves are held together with sticky tape. Separate them with an xacto knife and remove the igniter . Now use a spot of superglue to secure the igniter in the rocket motor.
THe launch rod is a bamboo skewer propped in a roll of solder, should have secured it, oh well. Wires are hooked to the igniter, a 9.6 volt drill battery as attached to the other end and fire happens. Reloads are accomplished by snapping off the old, and gluing on a new engine.
