Well I have decided I need a low power rocket I can use to practice with dual deploy So I am building one. Gonna be BT50 with an 18mm motor mount. 3 or 4 fins. Will use 2 BT50 couplers with a 3 inch ring to tie them together. Still not set in stone but I will play with the sims on openrocket when I get a chance next time I am off work. Looking for maybe 1000ft on a D21 and able to fly high enough for dual deploy on a C6. We shall see. Oh ya I will be using a quark. Once that is built and flown a few times I may turn my Sun-ward Arachnid into a dual deploy by adding a coupler and length of tubing and use it to learn my other altimeters. I am doing all this so I can just fly locally and not have to drive 2 hours to a field when there is a launch on a weekend I am not working on. I work every other week end so that is rather inconvenient.
