Probably close to zero if the E9 is anything like the E9's from my last pack. Those things pack a whallop!

Nobody around me has any E9s anymore.
E12s a-plenty which is a FAR better motor.

The only E that was less useful than the E9 was the old FSI TURD E-6

If you are NOT FLYING LOW in the left lane, you need to GET THE #$&@ OUT of it !

I switched to long (90") streamers instead.


I lost a Cherokee D at NARAM 50 with just nose blow! No chute or even a streamer!

The Cherokee-D is the only rocket I have built more times than the Mars Lander; 7 of them.
Not due to it being an absolute favorite, more due to never getting more than 3 flights out of one on D motors without losing them.
Most often now they fly on B4-4s or C11-5s.
When the D11-9 was still available, it was easier to recover due to having only ~13n-sec of impulse instead of the 17n-sec D12.

Quit being such a puss. I haven't had an E12 give me a photo op like the E9s do.

And the Cherokee-D itself is a stretched Cherokee-D.

The original K-47 had a 16.35" BT-55V body tube. Later ones used a full 18" length tube.

I GLEEFULLY ENJOY seeing OTHERS Powr-Prangg and Cato; most of those videos should be ended with a GIGANTIC LOUD ENHANCED BELCH, followed by a resounding YEEEEEAAAAAHHHHHH !
Have NO NEED for it in any of my vee-hikk-ulls.

My sim for the Cherokee-E is already done... As is the ESAM-58, the Luna Bug, and the EPIC II (all Hobby Lobby Exclusives). FWIW, Hobby Lobby frequently offers free shipping to purchases of $50 or more w/in the US. I have my stuff sent to eRockets where they gather them up until I have enough kits together to justify sending them in one large box at one time (its a lot cheaper than sending everything to China piecemeal).

Most of the files are on pg 16 directly, or if not, linked there.
