    What is the initial thrust of the motor. Put that amount of weight on the end of the rod and tilt it to your angle and see if the rod bows at all. That is what we are talking about here.

    Not at all. The thrust vector is skyward and in line with the c/l of the rocket.

    "Almost" looked like rod binding, until I watched it a second time. Dude, you have angry ghosts. Very angry...
