It ain't heavy, it's my Hermes

Final tweaks were made to the RockSim model and lead was measured out.  I swapped the stock screw eye for a small eyebolt so will be securely buried in the lead/epoxy slurry. It weighs 3 oz without motor.  Guaranteed to shred it's plastic 'chute. RockSim says a C6-5 will work, a B6-4 might be OK with a long rod, but forget the A8 unless you fly out of your long HPR tower. (Yes, LPR has been flown from the away cell at MDRA.)
