    More to follow, but not until I get back home, get my filament delivery and find "more" time for some stupid long prints. That one alone took over 26 hours. Eventually it'll start making sense (at least I hope?)...

    Hopefully you have better luck with it than the college team did weekend before last, their 4inch diameter 3D printed cone broke along the layer lines twice in one weekend. The second time was on a K1000, at about 1000' got to watch it fall. The flight continued on with only a slight wobble. The video might be visible in Flyfalcons June Swoosh video.

    Hmm, y'know? that gives me an idea! What if you took the finless rocket and the rocketless fins and... Nah, that'd never work.

    (Sorry, the tongue pressure inside my cheek must not have been visible.) If you combine the finless rocket and the rocketless fins you might get some sort of, well, I'm not sure what to call it, a rocket with fins. But that's just crazy talk.
