This is a good motor for this rocket...slow lift-off...long burn...ejection just past apogee...can be recovered in a small field!:p Here is recovery under an Estes 24" nylon chute...I have several of these in 18" and 24" sizes from old Pro-series and North Coast Rocketry kits and I think they are the best!!!:cool: :cool:
