Late night Super Alpha Update

Fins are on and 1st round of fillets are applied. I blew off the fin papering. While the fillets were partially dry, I stuffed 14' of caution tape and a rubber band shock cord (from the Mega Mosquito and another unknown kit) into the front end. I plugged the actual CG and weight into my RockSim model and, to my surprise, it should be stable on either an E16 or F15 without any added nose weight. Wahoooo!

I'm not holding my breath but Sunday should be dry and warm enough to prime this and the Mega Skeeter.

Hover and navigate forward (left) to see a couple of photos of the almost complete rocket:
