Great video Viking!
Beautiful rocket and flight Nic! Can you share a little more information about the smoke canisters in the nacelles? Will you fly it again with smaller motors instead of the smoke generators?

Hi George. The smoke came from cartridges I got from a supplier in Victoria (Strud put me onto them) and they cost a few dollars each. They are surprisingly hard to light and we had to use e-matches, BP and some AP slivers to get it going.
The intention is to fly the rocket on 38mm outboards along with the central 75mm motor, but that will be up to WARS as I donated the rocket to the club.
