Fins were replaced with fiberglass. Added some weight but they are very strong.

Fiberglass the body and fins... or G-10 (or whatever) fins

No, no, no. Balsa fins, cardboard tube. Just a little carbon added on top. Everyone should have a 54mm Big Daddy.

Years ago, I launched the 54mm version at NSL at Bong. Trip Barber was the LCO. He said "next we have a Big Daddy on a J....., that can't be right. Has this flown before??? Yes!

This is an old thread but I had the exact same question. I'm doing a stock build of the Estes Big Daddy for my small field fleet. I will be adding an ounce of nose weight. Thanks for all the replies.
