    Apogee F10-8. The sim says 6500' I expect more like 5800-6000' which would break the current TRA "F" record.

    Sounds like a fun flight, if you ever see it again. ..

    My rocket's way too heavy for that motor... Should fly nice on a CTI G33 mellow. I've already flown it on an AT G80 I got for free (a friend got a bunch on sale but didn't have a rocket for them... Thanks @dr wogz!)

    What’s the weight of that rocket without the motor?

    About 3 1/2 OZ. So, not bad at all.

    Got the tube & the nose cone wrapped. I got the fins painted today.
    All finished! Well, except for the recovery system. Speaking of which, should I stick a 18 inch nylon parachute, or maybe a 12 inch reflective parachute? Suggestions? Remember guys, I'm borrowing a tracker that is really expensive, so I want it to come down relatively slow..
    Oh, also, pictures will be posted soon!

    At 5000’ feet I’d probably use a streamer vs a chute. Pack your tracker for impact. The guy who’s record you’re trying to break used streamer.

    Andrew- Did you see that Tripoli updated their page a while ago to include some older records? The F record as listed on their page is currently 6786' from a 2001 flight.

    I'm not sure if your rocket sims near that, but either way -- have a great maiden!

    Yeah, but apparently that record flight was done before they changed the rules, so I think that's technically invalid.

    I just heard that they changed the rules after that flight in 2001. So, I think it might be invalid. I don't know for sure, but I think it might.
    I'll check in with James Doughtery, the head of the records dept. in TRA, and see what he knows about this.

    The flight is scheduled for next week. The weather forecast shows wind, but I guess we'll have to see whoppins..

    29mm MD rocket "The Minute Man" (Build Thread)

    I hit 4795’ in a 29mm MD on the weekend on a g80 - I used a 3m long reflective Mylar streamer.

    We lost sight of it at apogee but picked it up visually again in the way down. The shiny Mylar streamer worked a treat...

    It drifted 600m on a streamer - I shudder to think how far it would have gone on a chute from that high.

    I also managed to fit an eggfinder mini in the nose...

    It looks as if I might get the Minuteman it's first flight tomorrow!
    It'll fly on a F10-8. Expecting about 6K. It won't break the record, but it should be close.

    But, it looks like the launch of the Minuteman will be postponed due to wind.
    I'll get you guys an update tonight.
