Noseweight will likely go in tonight. 140g of mortar and then a little expanding foam to keep it in place.

Then she'll be ready to fly at Bong.

Beautiful lift off. Deployment at burnout. Drag separation, I think. Loose nosecone with a lot of weight.

Took some explaining at the RSO table - but she looks good on a 3G CTI G54 Red.

Looks like a great flight. No surprise that it took some explaining, it doesn't look too stable at first glance!

It's got a fair bit of noseweight. Well, had. I have to get a new nosecone for it.

Openrocket put it over 1 cal stability, though it took some coaxing to model it. The sim looks really good - from certain angles :)
