I flew the Odd'l Rockets Red Max themed 'Der Huge Red Squatty Body' on a 1/2A6-2 with a streamer. The flight was fine for the grass, but a small parachute (which is what it is supplied with) is optimal. Packing a streamer is easier, but really it needs a small chute. Do what I say, not what I do. With the weight in the nose cone it basically drags the streamer and body behind it.

Three fins and a nose cone. LITERALLY.
I just finished this Squatty Body model. It was a fun little build, but I haven't flown it yet. The paints are Rustoleum gloss enamels with a Future overcoat.
I test-fitted an 8" chute, which I think will work OK. I agree with a previous poster that the heavily-weighted nose cone probably needs a small chute. We'll have to see if I can get it to deploy without making a tangled mess.
This is a nice, slightly different kit that I would recommend to others.
Nice Job! :clap:!
