Build History

  • 12/29/2003 – Purchased FlisKits Cougar 660 from FlisKits for $9.84 (Retail – $10.95)
  • 11/02/2004 – Modified model from original plans. Pulled an ASP competition nose cone kit and insead it instead of hte thread and balsa nose cone supplied in original kit. Pushed the Kevlar through the hole, tied a know 4″ from the end and pulled the knot into the hole. Glud the know to the hole and some of the Kevlar along the body tube from the hole to the rear of the body tube with Elmer’s Yellow Glue. Ran a bead of glue on the inside rear edge of the main body tube using a Q tip. Inserted the engine nit into the rear of the body tube into the glue. Oriented the unit so the Kevlar sticking out of the rear of the body tube is midway between 2 fins. Measured the Kevlar protruding from the hole 20″ and cut off the excess. Worked the streamer at 6″ and 8″ along the edge and a small 3″ mark across the end. Drew lines across the stream at the 6″ and 8″ marks.
  • 11/06/2004 – Started laying 8 lb Kevlar on streamer using 1/2″ mylar tape when almost done, one more piece to place, I realized the 12 lb Kevlar thread was supposed to be used instead of the 8 lb. Carefully removed the tape and thread from the streamer material and started over. Places 6″ of mylar tape along the left edge of the streamer with the sticky side above the streamer material. Tied a knot in the end of the Kevlar ehread and layed it along the edge of the streamer on the mylar tape sticky side. Folded
