For those interested in how to setup a Wildman Blackhawk 29mm min-diameter for dual-deploy, I have photos of how I did mine here.

I can't imagine using motor deployment on that rocket.
Not only will it be a heck of a search to find the rocket but even a long delay is too short and unpredictable.

Nice. One probably needs to have the hands of a surgeon to play with this...:eyepop:

By the way, what type of battery do you use to fire the ejection charges? Will a regular 9V battery fit in there?

That's why it's built so that everything is accessible, and comes apart.

Sure, if I flatten it with a hammer, first.... ;)

A 9V won't fit -- it's too large. I'm going to use a LiPo cell; there are several on the market that will fit in the available space without an issue, and will provide more than enough current.

The Parrot itself has a small LiPo cell on its backside which provides its power.
