Yup. Comes down in 2 parts. IMO ... The LES is too fragile to withstand any thing other than a PERFECT landing in soft grass. So ... My plan is to do lots of photography on the launcher WITH the "fake" engines & LES mounted, then remove them for actual flight.I'm nearing the end of the build, and I gotta say, wow, what a kit! I even made some mistakes (my cuts on the fairings and the cutaway bit at the bottom were a bit rough), but unless you look closely, you don't really even see them.
So, am I reading the instructions correctly, that the rocket is meant to come down in two pieces? Two chutes for the main body and one for the top section, hanging at an angle from the wire anchor?
Are most of you doing this, or are you keeping the rocket in one piece? I suppose it might be better to have the top come down separately if you have the LES glued on, which I think I will. I'm just curious how others might deviate from the instructions here.
