Good idea. Unfortunately due to the layout of the launch facility I have to work with, the people running the launches don't allow us to change the launch rod angle (safety issues due to nearby people using the soccer fields).

Bummer, I believe an adjustment to allow the rocket to fly straight up is better and safer than one flying sideways. Perhaps you could explain and see what they say. Fly Happy!

I managed one flight with the Interceptor, trying a C6-3 instead of a C6-5. Due to the wind (10mph maybe), the Interceptor had some serious arc and a 3-second delay was just what was needed. A 5-second delay would have deployed right above the ground. Definitely the model likes to weathercock it seems to me.
