Considering it's length, I doubt you will need any extra weight in the nose. But, that's just a guess on my part.

Same here, with that length I would be very surprised if any noseweight is needed, In fact I would be willing to bet it is already over stable,

Ill rocksim it for you tomorow morning and give you projected altitudes ect, but you will have to PM me a few details. From what I figure , it wont need any nc weight.

Corpse,

Attached is a RockSim 5 file that should be close, since I dont have the details. You should expect an altitude around 1200 ft. AGL and you don't need any added nose weight.

I you want a better simulation file you need to post the details such as fin and nose cone measurements, launch lug location, and motor mount, parachute and other internal details.

Do you have a thrust curve file for the econojet F21-8w? I had to use a F24-7 which is similar..

I forgot to mention that the above is a RockSim version 5 file that can be opened with the demo version of the software.

I ran a few RockSim simulations; the Estes Executioner should reach about 1000 ft AGL on an F motor.
