I want to test some avionics and want to use my egglofter as a test bed for some altimeters. Since an altimeter weighs much less that an egg, Iknow I need to add nose weight.

Qusetion is, how much?

I have never actually flown any eggs so I dont know what to use for a mass comparison:

Smalll, Medium, Large, Jumbo, Scrambled, Sunny Side Up? Omlette?

So, in anticipation of the prequisite monty Python Humor:

Swallow Ballistics

Meanwhile

What mass should I use to compensate for an unladen egg-lofter.

Hey, I can pm you with our TARC rocket from last year if you have rocksim. It was an egglofter with the electronics that was perfectly stable. You can just use it as a base to judge with.

What kind of egglofter? The two kits I make and sell are stable without an egg in them.
