    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. :)
