or E9...maybe F21?
:D

yeah...
i couldn't help myself!
REALLY!
the 18mm MMT just looked too small for this bird...so in went the 24mm with no thrust ring so i can use any length motor

gonna use stock fins and as little epoxy as i can stand
:D

but, with a nice reflective mylar streamer, maybe i'll spot it on the way down...
it only sims to 1100' on a d12
1800' on the E9

i'm more worried about the fins staying on at 300 mph than finding it again...

Id change the fins with ply & add epoxy fillets! I've heard that rockets with a 2fin design whisle at apogee , but this one doesn't for some reason , possibly because I've only flown it on a A/B/C? Wow! Thats quite high! I would of thought around the 2k mark myself. A long red or gold mylar streamer should be fine! Or a 12" 'chute.
