Binder Design Stealth Jr.
This was my first High Power Rocket that I have built and since I just joined this forum I figured that I would share my experience with you all about this model.
Building: The build of the rocket was very straight forward and simple, Binder does an amazing job of supplying all the text and pictures you need to build there products and fly them just as they were intended.
Flying: My first flight with this rocket was with an Aerotech G80-10T, which took it off the pad at a nice speed, altitude was only about 1,300-1,400 feet but with a single parachute recovery that's not an issue.
Painting/Finishing: I didn't really feel like filling the spirals so I just left them to be. I shot the rocket using a modeling airbrush with flat black acrylic paint, three coats about 5 minute drying in between, then two coats of flat clear acrylic to finish it off, put on the stick and that's it!
