NanoEX, ready to fly

I completed the NanoEX and may give it a go tomorrow.  My confidence in this hair brained scheme is low, but we'll see.  I connected the nose to the body with a short piece of thin Kevlar twine and made a card stock fin can from Art Applewhite's BicStic pen rocket plans. I tweaked the scale a bit since the MicroMaxx tubing is slightly smaller than a Bic® pen.  I also added a thrust rung to the motor case.
