Make the Patriot Rocket Part 2


In this part of the tutorial we install the engine and the launch lug.


Insert the engine mount

Next we are going to glue that engine mount into the tube. The instructions show you the dimensions.


Ring of glue

It involves putting glue in there. One is a ring of glue deep inside.


Mark for fins

Now let's put those fins on! Mark 5mm from the end of the tube with the engine mount installed. That is one end of the fins.


the fins are straight

Take your time gluing each fin to the tube. Get them nice and straight. And they should form a nice even X pattern.


Affix launch lug

Next we mount the launch lug to the tube.

The instructions show you exactly where.


NextOk ok! Lets finish this rocket off by putting together the parachute and recovery system.
