Does anyone have an idea how high a Forte might go an a G80-10T? I have launched this combo before, but it has been a few years.

Thanks!

I ran a RockSim and it came out to 1,400 feet. I entered a 7 second delay not a 10 like you mentioned because the 10 just causes a late deployment, no extra altitude.

Wrasp gave me a height of 1000 assuming a rocket weight of 29 ounces...

It too chose the 7 second delay over the 4 or 10

D'oh! If you need to trade for a shorter delay, let me know. I think I might have a -7 in my box. I know for sure I have -4's although those might be too short. Shoot, if it means we get to see more composites burn, I'll be certain to make you a trade!
