I guess... My BD "EXCEL" came with launch lugs....

No doubt I'll change to rail buttons...

I'd take a semi-educated guess that it comes with 1/4" lugs...that's what came with my BD Dragonfly anyway.

Best place for rail buttons is railbuttons.com. You can always add rail buttons later.

And there's nothing wrong with having both buttons & lugs on a rocket!

how do you have both?? One on either side?? I prefer rail buttons because, the rocket cant turn on the rail like it does on a rod and risk screwing up your ignitor, and i think they look nicer.

Yes, each between different sets of fins. I put lugs and buttons on lots of my rockets. Having both provides flexibility. Despite liking buttons, I'd rather not wait for a launch slot on a rail if there are open rods. I often solve(d) this by bringing my own rail pad which I could move to any unused set of wires.
