Mr. Pringles, tube fin design built by Tom Sample for the First Grade science class at Cuyahoga Heights Elementary School. The children collected empty Pringles cans for the fin-tubes. Barry Lynch of LOC Precision donated some scrap parts for the balance, with Tom Sample purchasing and installing a LOC ejection gas baffle in this rocket (they work great and nearly eliminate wadding). This flight was at Amherst on a G80-4T, for approx 1000' altitude. The rocket is 45" tall, weighs 36oz, and has a 3" body tube. Pringles cans were attached with PL300 and JB Weld. This was the 7th flight for this very stable rocket. Thanks to Barry Lynch and LOC for their support of rocketry for youth and Scouting!! Update information
