Several years ago I built this rocket with a 38mm mount thinking I would enter into high power. Well I decided that mid power up to G motors was enough for me. So I ordered a 38mm to 29mm adapter and it launched spectacularly on a G74-6 composite. Almost out of sight and good recovery yesterday! Love that white lightning motor!

Very nice. I‘ve flown mine on motors ranging from a G74 to a J270 for my L2. That’s it on the J270 in my avatar. It’s a nice flyer. There’s a video on YouTube of a stock build on a Loki K627! Well, I suppose he swapped out the lugs for buttons.

Sharp looking SecondRow! I believe the kit had 2 different length forward sections that I I originally glued together wrong!😮 So I just have the nose cone separating at ejection! It seemed to work ok.😕

Yes. On mine, the white painted section above the transition is the first forward section and the blue painted one is the payload. I put my gps tracker in there. It doesn’t leave a lot of space for recovery. I can’t just shove it all in there. I’ve had to work on my packing technique to get it all to fit. I think your setup allows more room for recovery, as you have the entire length of both forward sections to work with.
