    Rules Clarification (stock length, tube, fins, nose cone) .
    Does that mean all four fins must be used ?

    I'm tending to think the appropriate question is "How many of these survive their debut at AirFest?"

    If you dont use the switchband, what is going to prevent the avionics coupler from jamming into the nose cone when the drogue charge goes off???

    You put a stop/ledge on the inside of the nosecone the bay butts up against.

    On another note, the rocket must be "stock length" for the contest.

    While you *could* do that, seems to me that would be a helluva lot more work for no "good" reason. :)

    Mine is 6.5 oz heavier than Griffins (larger fillets and overkill double walled coupler).

    Hauled the mail to 22,968' :) 20180831_142148_resized.jpg 20180831_142210_resized.jpg

    Mine left the pad and weathercock’d pretty hard. Also lost the tracker sometime in the flight. Successful flight even though it wasn’t the winner. Recovered all in one piece and hit 19,330.
