WOW! I don't think I have ever had anyone over react to my comments quite like you just did Jim! Nothing complicated about wrapping 1/4" trim tape to an adapter, it's a lot like wrapping 1/2" masking tape actually. The difference for me is that the smaller tape makes the adapter fit into my Aeropac and Estes 29mm motor retainers. And it seems to be working just fine for the few flights I have made with it. Can't say I have ever peeled a D12 to get it to fit, (isn't that like altering a motor?) but I'm probably a relative novice with only seven years in the hobby. Probably haven't flown nearly as many D12's as you. But I will take your advice and enjoy my regularly scheduled forum. That's about the only good advice I found in your post.
