Anyone have experience launching an Estes Mercury Atlas in 20 degree or colder weather? Any chance the metallic wraps would stop adhering to airframe, due to cold?

I have flown my Estes Mercury Atlas several times but not in temps that cold. All I can tell you is that if you spent anywhere near the time I spent finishing mine with those mylar strips and you think there's a chance they could be ruined, don't do it!

Happy bDay Dave !
Ignore him- he's everywhere. I opened a box of cereal this morning and there he was. Pay no attention-nothing to see here-move along. Back to the original post.
