Are there any similar delta designs (other than the Vulcan) that do or don't wobble? Might be the ram scoop on the bottom though. Or just a CG/CP issue...

I went with a B6-4 and a streamer for recovery. I need to look at the Vulcan plans again to see what it used for recovery.

I used just a tad over an ounce of weight, it rattles real nice (sinkers in the nose cone)!

Just a tad of damage on a fin tip.

I do not like the BT-20 size tube for stuffing a chute. I might try to upscale this bird to a BT-50.

Looked like it dropped pretty fast in the video. Was your streamer short or not unfurled completely?

Yaeh it was short and paired up(two). I did not have cray paper with me and did not have a chute small enough.

My BC-739 nose cones came in! They are 0.05" over for a BT-20, but are sanded down to fit. Now to get them painted and ready to launch.

First flight in Champaign was successful. Went higher than I expected.
