Mini Higgs Build, part 4

The build is complete except for the last piece of the recovery harness. The kit comes with a thin tubular elastic cord that connects the nose cone to the Kevlar cord. I'm contemplating adding a thicker and longer elastic strap. I also went ahead and added a 3/16" lug. The 1/8" square lugs probably are sufficient for a C11 flight but I figured that a larger one might be better for D12 or composite flights.

This will hopefully fly at the June NARHAMS launch.
