    Very cool. How tall is the model, and where did the CG end up?

    Sorry for the Slow reply, the Original is about 13in long, weighs about 14oz, with E30-4 loaded, CG is about 6.5in from the tip of the nose, and the motor mount extends down into the Funnel about an inch. I moved the motor mount back as far as possible to allow more room in the bt80 main tube for recovery. I fly it on E30-4, E20-4, and reloadable E18's. It is a brick, and on the reloadable, due to old delay elements, it has come in ballistic a couple of times, but in the soft ground or field where I have flown it, it suffers little damage.
