The Big Daddy oughta fly awesome with the A10's! I like quick boosts from Estes motors, this should be exactly that.

Did you add noseweight to offset the mods and motors?

Yeah, what they said, Tony!

I opened the second picture, and did this: :eek:

That is an absolutely beautiful cluster! She (He?) should fly great on a E9-8 and four A10-PT's! <insert evil laugh here> :D :D

Looks great! Good job!

Yup.. Just enough to keep original CG... It's prep'd for E9's but I dont have one at hand... I'll have to probably add more for that motor.

CAUTION!

Make sure you plug the mini-A tubes with dummy casings or some other plug so that the ejection charge doesn't "leak" or "escape" through the open MMTs!

Also, if you do go with dummy casings, be sure to plug those with clay or epoxy.

Best of luck! Looks like it'll scoot nicely fully stacked!
