I bought an MLC2 from evan4218 about a year ago, and I'm just now getting around to working on it. Some of you may have seen my beacon light tutorial, so here's where the bulk of the rest of the project will go.
First off, I wanted to mount the thrusters and rocket in a unique manner:
Here's a view of the 'T' bar area. This allows me to break down the pack for storage and travel...
"But BatNinja, how is that possible? The PVC bars appear to go through the fiberglassed area of the pack!"
Ah, grasshopper...here is the secret!
I cut out the sides of the PVC tubes so that they could 'circumnavigate' the pack structure.
The only sacrifice was on the outside of the pack, where I hand to sand off the mounting seats for the thrusters, so that I could position the PVC in place. Later, I found out this was more accurate, anyway. Go me!
