I want to build a model based on a 3.5" tube, about 40-50" (haven't done the scale math yet) tall. It would have NO FINS becouse it's going to be a scale rocket and I can't bring myself to attach clear fins no matter how hard I try. Motors would be likely to be two 29mm H's. There will be engine bells that should act like minimalist fins but I'm not counting on that. For those of you that have flown finless (succesfully that is) before...Will I need to measure nose weight in ounces or pounds ? How many calibers of stabillity or static margin do you think I'll need ? Should I count down from ten then yell "Hit The Dirt !" before I press the button ?
