It was a good nominal flight on an Estes D12-5 to about 300-400 feet.

Next was the Nike Hercules. I’d been apprehensive about this one because of the weight and the cluster of 4 D12s and there is hardly any room for a big chute. My Roachwerks Nike was lighter and had a big chute compartment. There was mention of using D12-5s and D12-3s also. I went with D12-3s but had to peel a layer of paper off each one to fit.

I did cram a 22” thin mill chute into it…no way to get the suggested 36”!🙄
