Hope to order mine tomorrow

Also, I would think that the new
Estes Super C motors, C5-3 would also work with this kit?

Looks like a real good'n !
I would think the C5-3 would work great. Each is rated to lift 8oz, so 2x should be plenty.

I was looking at the kit on my phone last night and wondered what that beast is going to weigh. It's a BT-80 sized kit with lots of extra detail. I sure hope the C5-3 lofts it sufficiently!

Boyce's website says 10.3 oz. Mine will probably be a little heavier since I tend to build heavy just about everything (unless it's a glider.)

I would think as long as it weighs under 16oz, 2xC5-3 would be ok.
2 Aerotech full 20 n-sec D10s or D24s would be even better but far more costly.
Don't even think about using lame-o C6-3s.

I would probably lean toward the Aerotech D24s due to blue thunder propellant easily igniting in a cluster. I don't think I would want to attempt 2xD10 as White Lightning has more of a chance of a chuff, which is really lousy in clusters.

Due to the cost of the kit, the effort we put into our space program scale models, and the limited recovery area, a pair of C5's sound perfect. Twin 30" chutes and rocket eating trees spell disaster with greater altitudes.

I'm guessing based on the C12 numbers that the C5's might get 275-300'. I'd like to see it on a pair of real B14's for those tiny school yards and little league fields. Bill could probably do a flight on his B6-4 field with 'em. The real GT had a quick liftoff compared to the other manned launch vehicles...scale realism. lol

At that weight I'm not sure it needs that much canopy for recovery. I'm guessing a pair of 24" parachutes would be enough--but I haven't crunched any numbers yet.

I hope the 3D printed parts are a little smoother than the Boyce Nike Ajax parts! I started a build thread on the Ajax late last year and I'm STILL trying to get the parts sanded smooth.
