it isn't that I don't have faith in it...its just that I want to use a chute hankie, and the tri-fold gets in the way. the mount/bt are now waiting for me to attach fins.

for those wondering, a good cigar is a smoke .

Then do it now!

You will forget.

I see you remembered the launch lugs.

I don't recall ever forgeting the lugs...a chute once(lpr) by accident, and once by choice(it was a might bit breezy). but since you insisted, the bird is now prepped(excluding motor* prep) and ready to fly, don't even have to worry about wadding (9 x 9 chute protector)

*looks like an F52-7 should work nicely .

flew it today(18 Aug) on an Aerotech F52-7 reload(29/40-120 rms case), very nice flight, straight, ejection delay looked to be perhaps a 1/2 sec long...otherwise no drama .
