had five minutes spare so i thought i'd build one of the easy rockets in the build pile. mainly because EMRR is having a Guest Generated Hit List and this is a rocket that has not been reviewed on that site.

takes longer to open the packet than to build.

using CA gel, the rocket glues together in seconds.
Normally i would replace the shock cord with kevlar but i will probably only fly this rocket three times, and the cord will hold up for that long. - after that i'll probably sell it to someone on ebay!!!

Will probably fly this friday, provided the weather is okay.

motors and altitude are:

1/2 A3-2T 157 feet.
A3-4T 330 feet.
A10 -3T 316 feet.

Given how small the BT is i might go for a streamer instead of the 'chute.

flew today on an A10-3T

good flight, but the parachute is a tight fit.
