Hello All from Nepal. I am part of a college students led rocket club. We are preparing to participate in the Spaceport Cup America, but are missing an advisor. So, I am looking forward to the fellow rocket lovers and veterans help and advice on topics that may arise.

The elevation of Kathmandu is almost that of Colorado. I remember seeing minor concerns with launching at higher elevations but don't remember what it is.

Your parachutes are less efficient so you must upscale them to get the same decent rate, your fins will be less effective however if you have 2 cal of stability you should be fine.
