I recently finished consructing a LOC Warlock and will be soon pumpin it up on an AT I435T. Both BT and nose have been glassed and it weighs a little bit more than it would if it wasn't glassed.(About a Lb. more) I will be using AT delays on the first few flights or until the avionics bay is completed so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I don't get a bad Aerotech RDK+ delay( and yes, they are out there). With that in mind I feel it necessary to designate the nosecone with its own respective parachute so as to prevent too much damage to the rocket "should" it eject early. I strongly feel that should I exprience early ejection, at least the weight of the nosecone won't zipper the BT as badly considering that this is a very large nosecone. I have to admit, I have heard both good and bad reasons of why I should or shouldn't do this. I figured I would let the Forum "naw" on this one for a while. What do"you"think guys?
