As the date for my L1/L2 flights gets closer I find myself stressing out more and more about the rocket. Just today I went and bought a second set of o-rings to protect the altimeter and some shear pins (I really don't want to lose cert if the parachute comes out other than when I said it would)

For my shear pins I bought some 1.5mm round styrene rod (Plastruct) I am planing on using it for 3 shear pins in my system to keep everything in place.

Also I spied at Ace hardware some nylon Arrow clips, anyone ever use these?
