Thanks for the nosecone pics. I'm going to try the archotype cable cuter in mine.
Yes, I have a couple Archetype cutters too. I'll be using them in a couple minimum diameter, high performance builds where space and weight are at a premium.
Dude that looks great!
I still think that this is a great looking rocket.
BTW, Eric was right above as he often is. First flight a few years back at Agonia ended tragically with a drag separation of the heavy cone on burnout and my "duh" moment of not adding the two shear pins. Anyway, went out and recovered the debris and have had it sitting on a top shelf in my workshop. Happy to say this winter I pulled the pieces down and began the reconstruction of the airframe, MMT upper CR, and NC. Project is now at finish primer stage and should fly at Midwest Power first week of November.
(With cool new decals oriented properly.)
Maybe that's why rockets don't fly well. I have been putting decals on wrong. The Warlock I am building might fly well if I get them on correct.
Been lusting after the Shock since I first saw it on TV.
Wasn't that Dan Stroud's "supersonic showdown" challenger on The Rocketry Challenge?
Time to rearrange my vacation schedule. - For some reason I thought this was always the last weekend in October.
Looks like there's a new website >>> http://www.midwestpower.org/pages/MWP_home.
Anyone still flying one of these? Wish they were still being made.
I did a L2 cert with one. I am pretty sure Dave is done with making kits. It would not be hard to make from scratch though!

Anyone have the rocksim?
Here is the .rkt file I used to cert. I modified the rocket to have a longer nosecone so I could get better stability. YMMV! ...Bert
