    More about finding it than landing.

    Unfortunately no, as there just hasn't been enough demand to justify the cost.

    That's too bad. Although, maybe I should look at this like therapy...it really doesn't matter if my fins are just a little bit mis-aligned on MMX and mini rockets (I need to repeat that over and over...)

    I think I may have worlds smallest Der Red Max.

    In this pic. You have a carded Chris Michielssen Der Red Max and Yellow Jacket. Next to them are their BT-2.5 counter parts and a MMX engin for comparison.

    read the title and I immediately thought someone has glued fins, a launch lug and a nosecone to a motor... you can't get smaller than that...

    MM 345-sm_Nano-Dot_06-29-08.jpg My Smallest MMX rocket .281"dia x 1-39/64" long is Shown below. I've made 12 of the little buggers to date I have yet to recover one. I've had as many as 30 pair of eyes watching their launches but no joy on recovery. these little .8g rockets teleport out of sight so quickly we don't even get to see the smoke trail:)

    I know you must be used to losing them... reminds me of a phrase I share from time to time "the lifetime of any rocket in hand is one more launch"

    Wow, that went slightly sideways. Could you not make a small payload section built on top of the motor that would house a streamer? It's single use but recoverable.
