You could also experiment with a set of canard fins to reduce the weather cocking. The rocket will still travel along with the wind but it should help at keeping it pointing straight up.

Spacecad will give you a template for a gore panel based on the number of panels and size of chute you want, even adds in the hem.

Looks like a good day was had by all. Nice photos robotic. Who owns the semroc Hustler or is it a 'Lil' Hustler?

Congratulations on your launch day, seems like everyone had a lot of fun. Shame about the CATO Ari :( , looks like a bit of repair work required. And finally how many people turned up :shock:

That should be nice to see coming off the pad. The RR looks enormous when put in comparison with a person. Any chance of getting a video of the launch?

Big low power or small mid power?

Im looking at launching a Saturn 1b at the next NSWRA meet with 4 clustered C6 motors. The total impulse is around the E mark so would this unit be classed as a mid powered rocket? Just wondering if a succsesful check and flight of this would clear me for MPR engines.
