Rightio! I found another video that talks about the video I posted and they talked about how they used a solid rocket booster to get 'er up to speed and then the scramjet took it over from there.
Mac, how would you make the round fuse of the t28 with foam? Are you just using a flat sheet or what?
I feel like the champ would be easier to make because it has that square-ish fuse..
