I did have the thought of putting liquid oxygen in one boom, liquid hydrogen in the other boom, and an ingition chamber in the middle, but I'll just settle for an Exceed Monster 10 and a 10x5 prop.

Nope, this project was placed on hold for a while. I hope to have it finished by the end of October (just guessing).

Some Progress


Made some progress on Trident this past weekend. Booms and center pod were covered and glued to the wing. Also installed the main landing gear mounts into the booms. I plan on using an Exceed RC Monster 10 motor.
