Just got back from the launch site with the Aerotech 75/5120 case I'm going to use for my upcoming Level 3 flight. Big honking case, longer than my forearm and almost as thick. Inside there's a plastic pouch with a green piece of paper from Aerotech...

Ohhhhhh...

I hadn't opened the plastic pouch, and the flip side was up against the yellow postcard also in the pouch.

I'm trying to visualize a copperhead big enough for an M motor. Other than the venomous variety. :rolleyes:

they were about 1/8 to 3/16 wide and like I said the came with thermalite. I'm not sure what the biggest motor they came with, but I i remember them being pretty big.

I know the difference I was stating 75 and 98 is where THERMITE and pellets are needed.
