Watched a video or two on Youtube and it is not that difficult. I will purchase the honeycomb and cloth and laminate it. Big experiment. This will be a wings first then the body build. Another problem to resolve is the modular weights needed for different motors. Current sims put it at 3 lbs plus depending on the motor.

Here is the motor chart for a 38mm MMT. The J510 will need avionics to deploy. Waiting on the components.

RockSim Issue, I tried to upsize my MMT to 54mm from 38mm and now RS says it can't get the rocket off the pad. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Post the sim, maybe a mass issue related to upscaled MMT thickness?

Electronics are assembled. Found out I am a bit rusty on soldering. I used Eggtimes so I can swap them into other builds also the challenge of doing DIY electronics. Location system from Eggtimer will be next.

Took the big step and ordered the fins, carbon fiber/aramid. Thanks to Wildman for the work.
