Ok got it you guys. Thanks.
Haven’t made any game-changing dumb epoxy mistakes on the current rocket but it ain’t over yet lol.
I’ve never used heat to remove epoxy before. Not a bad idea.
What if you had to remove say a wood centering ring or part? Can the epoxy be...
No pics right now but got the aluminum bulkplates for the AvBay plus motor retention.
The 1/8” motor retention plate sits right on the CR that...
All good points I hadn’t considered Troj.
Level 4 would work!

Thanks for the info guys on the potential Marsa firmware issue.
It never hurts to be careful about so critical a system.

This is an example of a diagram the Engineering Dept sends me while I’m putting this rocket together.
