a small rocket it calls for a 13 mm motor.

should i go 13 mm or 18 mm
motor ?
Just finished mine up today, first one completed and painted.

I went with the 18mm option and will friction fit the motor. Choice will depend a lot on what you want and where you want to use the rocket. With the 18mm it will go reeeeaaaaalllllly high, so unless you are going to get a waver you might want a smaller motor in it.

The Blue Streak looks very cool
if that calls for 13mm and you put a 18mm mmt in it instead, man that puppy is gonna go outta sight.

Did you use the same fin placement when you built the Blue Streak last time? That may be why it made a left; did you check the stability of the rocket with this alternate fin placement?

Corpse, I got the pm but for some reason I can not use the pm feature to send messages out, always says url not found.

Really like Sonora - all my rockets that I have so far came from the Hobby shop in Oakdale.

I travel a lot and work mostly weekends, but yes it would be great to get together to shoot off a few. Lunar shoots are in Livermore not far from Oakdale, perhaps one of your visits will fit in with a shoot there and we could join in.
