Great build thread and, what a cool kit. I was wondering why you are using a four(4) rail button configuration? Have not seen that used before.
1010 and 1515. Comes with 1515 but 1010 should work just fine. Our club runs mostly just 1010 rails. I added the 1515 just in case.

Cool build. Why rail buttons set off to the side. Do I see 2 sets?

Good job. I'd be interested to know if the T fins reduce spin compared with, say, a Warlock or Doorknob flown in similar conditions. I suppose a drag race might settle the issue. 😊
I don't think they would reduce spin, but that's just a guess.

That little cartoon image was the inspiration for my warlock, did the mouth with blue painters tape, took awhile haha.

I love that rocket and fully intend to copy it sometime.

Since I am making the top half removable for access, I needed to cover the screws so the recovery hardware wouldn't catch on anything. I added these to cover the screws.

For some reason my eyes saw the L and B and I though, well of course 5 lbs of BP was plenty, that would be enough to launch the whole rocket in the air.

That would be fun to watch
