    Just finished building my LOC VII and waiting for warmer weather to prime and paint. What a beast!! Definitely a big K for first launch. Does anyone have a 54mm motor sheet for this rocket with appropriate delays for single chute deployement?

    Weigh your completed build and use Thrustcurve.org to get a good idea of how it'll perform on K's

    If you haven't heard of OpenRocket, that program will help you dial in your predictions very well

    Thanks for the prompt reply. Ran Thrustcurve and think that a K535W with delay set to 8 seconds looks like a good first flight to about 1800 feet. Course the L1000W with 10 sec delay should send it up 3400 feet!
