Boil 1 gallon of water

I hope this is the definition of a j-tube rocket. Its a j tube with a 20ga  barrel over the riser, hot plate is used as lid of barrel. Its my second "test" rocket. Will build for keeps real soon based on what I learned.

we need to get the BB created, move your post to the BB and then I can do the validation thing-a-ma-bob.

 
I am going down to the lab. Do NOT let anyone in. Not even this tiny ad:
