Are descent rates calculated for a fully loaded rocket with motor hardware or without? I'm assuming without but I think it needs to be added to the weight of the rocket. How else can you get an accurate rate? I have a 3.5 lb rocket and I plan on flying everything from H's to K's. My K motor weights 4 lbs. so how do I calculate it's weight? Average it out? It's going to come down a lot quicker with the K hardware than the H.
