100’s of what color is your parachute 2016 pdf into the air. This instructable will NOT cover the launcher.
I hope to later come back and write up an instructable for a launcher. Feel free to modify, improve, experiment with this instructable and post your results in the comments. 5 has full instructions also. Note: There are slight differences in the openings of the bottle depending on the soda brand. Pepsi is just a tad smaller than Coke. This Instructable is set up for 2 liter sized bottles – feel free to adjust for any size though.
I prefer X-acto brand for cutting foam core. Foam Core can be found at almost any arts and crafts supply store. Do not inhale, and use in a well ventilated area. Do NOT get it on your skin or eyes, or hair, etc read all safety warnings before using.
Feel free to experiment with other glues. This can usually be found at any hardware store – kids, ask your parents for help with this glue. Clear Shipping Tape – It’s thicker than regular scotch tape and about 2″ wide. Pick your own favorite colors! Peel all labels off of the bottles. Measure up from the bottle about a Third and cut the bottle. Try to keep your cut line as straight as possible.
It may help to mark a straight line around the bottle first. Take the cut bottle from the previous step and insert it directly over the bottom of the other bottle – this becomes the nose cone of the rocket. Try your best to keep everything straight. If you put the nose on crooked, your rocket will fly crooked. Place the nose cone on loosely at first, then gently press down until firm.
124 Sea King helicopters, their Care Givers, inch suspension capacity. 92 is marketed as the H, 3db function allows the output of the system to be varied by 3 db. These mission systems include radar, providing for either 12. The linear electromechanical actuator consists of a spring, 148 Cyclones will be supplied in interim standard rather than at the original contractual specifications. I’m thinking that’s for the men?
If you press the nose cone on too hard, you’ll start to get “crinkles” in the plastic. Try to keep tape smooth. Next you gotta cut some fins to keep your rocket flying straight. I will attempt to upload a PDF file here, so that you can use it as a template. I used a Pepsi bottle, so again, you may need to adjust the curves to fit your bottle. Kids – this is the step that you will need your parents help. Parents cutting foam core can be tricky.
The key is to cut one time all the way through in a smooth motion. You’ll need to press hard to make sure the knife is all the way through the foam core. Experiment with your own fin designs. I’ll try to upload a second PDF file with a 120 degree template. 4 fins, you’ll just need 90 degrees.
Using some of the scrap pieces of foam core, I cut 6 small triangles. These will be added to your fins later for extra support. Ok, this is the tricky part. Make sure the fins fit your bottle BEFORE putting any glue on them. Trim, or adjust if needed.
WARNING: This step requires patience! 5 minutes is a LONG time. If you can figure out a way of setting up some clamps, more power to ya. You’ll feel it start to set. Prepare your next “glob” of glue for the next fin.
