    Getting the weasel ready to fly. CP in open rocket, CG balanced and marked. 4.3 caliber stability. Will this fly well. I am using an estes E16-4 for the first flight. Simulation shows 778 feet.

    Should be a lovely flight. Was the CG balanced with the motor in?

    I have flown my Weasel on that motor many times. Nice flights, 780 ft is about right. Always stable off a 6ft rod.

    What would be the minimum rod length with this, and maybe smaller motors. I know I can get lots of altitude with this rocket, just don't want to lose it.
