My rocket is 25 kg, 2.60 m length and apogee is 3000m.I am just worried about stability. Is it normal?(starts with 2 and goes up 4.5)

Looks reasonable to me! Launch is around 2 cal, and as the mass of the motor reduces during burn the CG moves farther forward, increasing the stability margin.

The guy has nearly 5,000 posts. I'm pretty sure he's saying yes. Safe flight. Also, he's L3 Certified. Trust his reply.

We should be more concerned that the guy is lofting a 50+ pound rocket and asking that question.

Whose we.?? You can ask your question and I have no questions. Why didn't you ask.??(there's no need to) The OP asked a question and got a good answer. We can all move on now. wink.

I think he's one of the Turkish students that post from time to time in here with questions related to their Teknofest rocketry competition. They've shown up every once in a while for the past couple years. I assume they're like the college students here that work on school HPR projects; some of them know what they're doing, some are still learning.
