Thanks for showing the Zephyr. Really, really, really interested in this rocket.

I fly with the Mid-South Rocket Society in Memphis, Tennessee. As Elvis would say, "Ho, momma!"

Did you tie off the main chute shock cord to the nosecone loop? If so, I'd warn against that. While they might look sturdy, they can be prone to breaking. I speak from experience there. On the first flight of my scratch-built 3" with a Madcow PNC3.00 plastic nosecone, the loop broke.

Just a minor detail question. Is the decal green or a teal looking color like the picture posted of the build. Very nice looking rocket.

I would say a darkish green. I'm not good with colors but its definitely some sort of green I don't see any blue in it.

Its maybe my tablet. Decal looks a teal color and fins and tube strip do look green.
Thanks

probably a bit of 'UV' in the light from the flash skewing the colors about.

Your build turned out very nice, love the time lapse video. The CTI H110 should do the trick, best of luck!
