Flaming Christmas Tree upgrade is underway
I searched high and low and didn't come up with the 'U' shaped tubing that I needed. The radius was just too small. So, I built an enclosed cavity above the motor mount in question using piece of an old cardboard yarn bobbin. It is roughly a quarter of a conical section and follows the tree's hypothetical contour. I am mounting a BT-60 parachute tube below the motor mount in question. The two parts will be interconnected with 2 flexible plastic tubes. That's kludge a on top of a kludge!
