These custom machined fiberglass bulk plates are made from one solid piece of g10 fiberglass plate .
Cut specifically to fit our filament wound fiberglass body tubes and couplers.
They have a step around the edge to center and keep the plate aligned on the coupler
We machine marks into the plate to match industry standards of altimeter sleds and eye bolt mounting
these are sold individually
Excellent for mounting components and standing up to the high G forces of rocket recovery. Much better than wood or G10.
Intending to use for deployment pistons but I haven’t used them yet.
Already used a 98mm av-bay lid for 4” piston and it works great. Now building a 3” Wildman Shape Shifter with the same captive piston deployment system that I’m using on my L3 Wildman Extreme.
On my L3 Wildman Extreme. captive pistons allow me to use just 1 gram of Hogden FFFG Triple 7, and without needing to use flame protection for the parachutes or shock cord.
I’m planning on using this kind of recovery system on all of my fiberglass rockets.
Redid the E-Bay for my 75mm Dominator to add redundancy and reduce weight. Purchased the new coupler and lids from Wildman. Shipped quickly, arrived in great shape, and function perfectly!
