    Looks great, I am thinking about buying one of these. Does it fly well?

    I flew it last week for the first time on a E28-4. Flight was very stable, arrow straight. Ejected about perfectly, nose up.

    Great flyer, looks excellent going up. The Minotaur is great project, enjoyed the build.

    Hi all,

    I've just completed a Quest Minotaur and was prepping it for first flight when I found that the launch lugs have gotten really tight on my 3/16" launch rod. I recall that it was a "close fit" when initially glueing the launch lugs to the body tube, I guess just enough paint has gotten in there to make it hang-up sometimes when I try to slide the rocket from the rod. I'm afraid for what might happen if I try to launch it like this. Does anyone have any suggestions how to correct this, other than the obvious "sand the inside of the launch lugs"?

    What about using a 5/52" launch rod? Or a cabon fiber rod, perhaps 4.5mm?

    I know this model would typically be better placed in the mid-power forum, but I figure that there's probably more folks here who deal with 3/16" launch rod issues than there and I'll be doing my first few flights on a D12-3 anyways.
