I just ordered my L1/L2 rocket, a retainer, and 54mm-38mm adapter.
This rocket will be for my L1 cert. I hope to have it completed by April 24/25 so I can fly at our group's Spring Blast in Rainbow Valley, AZ.
I am wondering if I should get the 4.0" Altimeter bay at the same time if I decide to turn this into a L2 rocket. (This is also why I'm getting it with a 54mm mount)
What modifications would I need to do to include the bay, but keep the rocket the original length?
Can I fly it with the Altimeter bay installed (minus altimeter) and still use motor ejection? I would want to do it this way for my L1 attempt. I am thinking of keeping the K.I.S.S. method.I am planning a first flight with a
38mm H123. Maybe larger, I don't know.
I will keep a running build log of this rocket as soon as it comes in.
If you have any tips, information, or recommendations please let me know.
