Introduction: Diy Poster Tube Rocket
this is my first instructable i have built...
it was a rocket that i used a tube that a poster came in.
!!!!!I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR STUPIDITY BUILD THIS AT YOUR OWN RISC!!!!!
Step 1: The Setup
my teacher had ordered a poster for the class room and then had an empty tube.
i went around the classroom and got a red solo cup, i cut it into 3 equal pieces and just kept cutting one of the pieces until i liked the shape of the then i lined it up and cut the other 2 pieces the same as that one.
i used A LOT OF HOT GLUE to secure them to the tube. and i gave them a slight tilt so that the rocket will spin as it flies.
Step 2: Motor Bay
i took a sheet of card stock and cut it to fit the inside of the tube. i then too a hand full of rocket motors and set them up to see how many i could set up. which came to be 8 motors.
i traced the motors and then cut the first template out, then cut 3 more templates out of cardstock.
i set up all the motors in their slots.
there's 7 100' motors on the outside ring and a 1000' motor in the center.
i dont have the photos of the bay in the tube. but i also USED A LOT OF HOT GLUE to secure the bay inside the tube.
Step 3: Finished Product
this is all the photos that i currently have for the rocket but i used cardstock for part of the hull and found a plastic rocket tip and put it in the tip of the hull. i connected the hull to the body using a rubber band and then used a small trash bag as the parachute. i used fishing string to attach the parachute to the hull.
i used the paper wad that came in the tube as the stuffing for when the rockets explode to push the parachute out.
i then just painted it and called it the ''ONE SHOT'' because i used so much hot glue in the motor bay to hold it and the rockets in that i will not be able to reload it after its first launch.
i also took the ignition wires and just did a series circuit to connect all the rockets together.
thanks for viewing this diy rocket.
when in launch the rocket this summer i will video it and also post it on here.

Creativity and ingenuity are the mother of invention. Nice use of otherwise discarded parts. Do post the flight when you do launch it. Thumbs Up!
