So I just got my newest rocket in my fleet done. JM....Just Married. It's a simple 4" 3FNC rocket. It has a motor mount for my J845 EX motor - I used 3 centering rings. Above that I have my e-bay. With e-bay battery and charges it weights in at exactly 3 lbs. With a chute it gets a little chubby at 4.25 lbs. Recovery is with an 18" high speed drogue I make and then for the main I'm using a 42" hemispherical chute pulled out of a d-bag. The nosecone and 18" chute recover separately. Also, this is the first rocket I've spent ANY time painting. It came out okay, but I'll get better on the next one. Now for the pictures....
