I put a D+E motor mount in my Estes Big Daddy. Will it remain stable with an E motor or will the nose cone need some counter weight? This is the first time I've done anything other than follow kit instructions on two kits I have built.
Thanks,
Da Dog:confused:

welcome to the forum wonderdog.

You can sim the rocket and if you dont have the sim program you can always swing test it. Load it with a motor attatch a string and swing it around your head.
