Fill Tube

Posted on

I built the “fill tube” following ideas of this UKHAS wiki page.

As I don’t have something to create a grove, I used a PVC waste water plug that already have some kind of grove by design.

  • I strongly glued the flexible fill on it.
  • To close the remaining space, I added some wet newspaper sheets to create a temporary “wall”.
  • I used a hot glue gun, and let the hot glue fall all around the both sides of the newspaper.
  • I drilled a small hole to attach a nylon cord to be used for weighting and to secure to the ground bebore launch.

I was very happy with it. Looks strong and very easy to build.
