  1. Light flyer

    Posted by Randy on 9th May 2017

    This one, if even build with generous epoxy application is still a LIGHT rocket! She regularly goes to 3,000'+ on a AT I-140 DMS and wastes no time getting there... I like to use a Chute Release (open at 500') with this to keep recovery close-by since I didn't build this one dual-deploy. I'm more commonly a fiberglass-guy but I must admit I enjoy this one too.
