Estes Fat Boy #2

This one was to replace my other Fat Boy that floated away. I modified it to use a 24mm motor mount instead of the 18mm it came with. I also fiberglassed the body tube and balsa fins with one layer of 2 oz. cloth.

Dia: 2.6"; Length: 12.9"; Wt: 5.6 oz (160 gm); Motor (1): 24mm
Status: Lost.
