When I moved up to Mid Power, the rockets I built did not have a baffle. The 1st one with a "baffle" was the AT Arreauxbee-Hi, with the standard wire mesh. Then I scratch build a 24MM ARCAS and I installed a Semroc baffle w/ the holes in the bulk heads. Due to covid they are both awaiting their maiden flights. Then I was watching a video and there was a comment about the plastic ejection cap how it can damage the baffle and or get stuck in the body tube between the baffle and the motor mount. Now I think it will not be a problem in a AeroTech, but a rocket with a baffle will have issues. The solution in the video, suggested removing the plastic cap and using tape. Now if this is the best remedy, how hard is it to remove it without spilling the powder, and what would the ideal tape be. And is there any other way to avoid this issue. Many thanks to anyone who can help me with this issue.
