I found a g 40-7 on a recent trip to Indy. I have a Nike Smoke, The Mega Max and an unbuildt Argent. I have it "stored" in the Nike because 7 seconds seems too long on the Max. It would be my first composite motor and want to make the best use of it.

I just launched a Nike Smoke last Saturday on a G40-7. It was a perfect flight, over 1000'.

Argent or Smoke. The G40-7 is too long a delay by about 1.5 seconds for the MDRM. More importantly at 32+ Oz built the impulse really needs to be a bit higher for safe speeds off the pad.
