Thanks Chuck, One thing I think I did by mistake was mix-up the nosecones. I grabbed all 4 of the mini-missiles as I also think they are great kits and wish Eric would resurrect them. I assembled the first three as well as the 4th one's nosecone and have literally had them sitting, primed but not painted for around 8 months. I think I used the nosecone of the STD ARM AGM78 and used it on the Hawk. They are both made from what looks like Delrin but one has quite a bit of lead shot for nose-weight, the other does not. I have come to this conclusion from the sim results, my CG is just below the fins where as the CG in the sim looks like it should be much further forward.I miss those kits. Great job on the hawk.
I launched this rocket on the Sunday of NYPOWER using a 24mm 1 grain CTI E75 Vmax. Great boost, super stable up part and it looked great. Sim had it at 400' and it looked like I got most of that. Unfortunately that motor has a 17 second delay and I could only drill 9 seconds off, and my sim had just under 6 seconds as the recommended delay. The sim was bang on as it arced over around the 6 second mark and came in hot for a delayed deployment 2 seconds later.Finally got around to painting my BadAzz mini-missile Hawk. I used the Krylon khaki camo, first time using Krylon and I found it easy and forgiving to work with. I am still considering painting the nosecone either the camo black or olive, or just leave as it is...thoughts, opinions?
