The coupler came off the Egg Capsule 2 the other day. Epoxy just didn’t stick to the plastic. That I didn’t rough up the surface before gluing it may have been the reason, or not; anyway, I sanded the egg and used CA to stick the coupler back on. Might work.
It was sunny today, and not windy. I even went for my first bike ride of the season. But it didn’t quite get warm enough for me to want to paint. Instead I worked indoors today on the Bad Cholesterol, continuing what I’d been doing yesterday.
Both egg capsules are in pretty good shape, so I’ve started on the rocket-ish bits. I redesigned the fins; figuring if they’re coming down with the weight of two eggs under the chute, they need to be sturdy. So they’re a little offset from the back end, and the trailing edges sweep forward, and they mount through the wall. Also, and this is a first for me, they’re basswood.
So, one body tube, cut to length and with fin slots. One motor mount, rear centering ring left off for now.
Probably by the time we get painting weather again, this’ll be ready for primer.
