I would like to build an Estes Patriot Missle but convert it to use "D" sized engines. Will I have to add any additional weight to the nose cone or will I be ok as is? :confused:
Thanks,
Carl

Hi Carl,

Converted an Estes Patriot to E engines... Different fin pattern thou..

Re-christened it "Lil Lil Nuke"..

Flies great.. Had to add nose weight with E9's thou.. sim'd maginally stable w/o it.. Work's great on C11 and D12's.
