    That Lynx seems like a good looker and flyer.

    Does the body descend horizontally? Seems like that box kite fin configuration might provide enough drag on descent to hold it that way. If so, it is a nice "side effect" that may reduce fin impact force as opposed to the usual vertical orientation of typical 3FNC and 4FNC rockets

    On normal parachute recovery the Lynx hangs vertically. I had a couple of flights where the chute did not fully deploy and, yes, the model descended horizontally.
    This is one of my fleet favorites!
