I'm about to start an AT Mirage. Very nice kit, nice looking bird, but a little odd in design. The recovery opens the bird just above the boost can, at the joint between the first and second (of three) body segments. Plus, it comes down in two pieces. That seems like twice the chance for disaster, to me. I'd prefer a single piece. Doing the mod would then hinge on a decision on how to build the upper section differently. Wouldn't be hard to do, I'm just wondering what's the optimal design. Anyone ever seen a Mirage modded for a single piece recovery, up close enough to see where it was changed from the kit instructions?
