Well, you don't have to any more... Was told it was ok to share this with everybody thanks to Phil Queen. The nosecone is 3D printed, and the rocket separates at the bottom of the conic section. There was also some damage to one of the legs during a launch that you can see in the photos. The legs are fixed, but probably could be made to articulate. Apparently it flies to 50'. Look forward to this being released soon.
