The main airspeed flap is constructed from the mid-section of
another bottle and hinged at the top. The main airspeed flap
should have two pins attached to it. You make these pins from
paperclips or wire, or you can replace the pins with plastic to
avoid using metal parts. The first pin is located near the top,
and is perpendicular to the surface of the flap. This pin will be
used to hook the rubber band going to the nosecone. The second
pin is located at the bottom of the flap, pointing down. The
purpose of this pin will be explained in the next section on the
trigger flap.
